Sure the old md isn't hanging around by mistake or some such?

I have had people recover many files using the snapshot tool in ports 
(plus a small symlink maker for samba access) and haven't noticed 
issues like this.

On the otherhand I find it can take a long time to make a snapshot 
(during which time no FS access is allowed).
