Interesting insights.

I forgot to mention that there may be some discrepancies that are a  
remnant of reinstalling the OS many times.  (Now I know I could have  
used the loader.old trick...)

Anyway, while doing this a dozen times in a couple of days I learned  
that I could speed things by not doing newfs(8) each time, so the  
fsize and bsize fields are definitely messed up.  Yet things seem to  
work fine.  Weird.

My next experiment is to redo the disk entirely.
