I was not rebooting only to clear the error but also had just
completed a buildkernel/installkernel

Next time any errors occur (and/or slowdowns) I will turn checksum
off...  but for the time being after I sent that mail I just
remembered to other issues I had:

1. Using ftp(1) to upload my site some files where garbbaged,
incomplete and/or had too much/little data in them... attempted
reuploads corrected this but it was luck of the draw for any given
upload... problem also occured in filezilla

2. When browsing my site (but not other ones) after a
garbaged/whatever upload would produce different results on each
reload even if the source file had not been reuploaded (this is true
even for files that where corrected uploaded)

All issues listed so far are cleared by reboots but no other action
(have not tried -txcsum)
