Interesting (thanks to all who recognized Mork). I do use Firefox and
Thunderbird, so it's feasible, but how the heck would a piece of one of
those files find its way into 1/2 of a ZFS block in one of my mp3 files?
I wonder if it could have been done on write when the file was copied
to the ZFS pool (maybe some write-caching issue?), but I thought ZFS
would have verified the block after write. It seems unlikely that it
would get changed later - I never rewrote that file after the original
