It used to be that this situation could arise even without snapshots
or such "mitigating" circumstances. I'm pretty sure this was fixed,
such that you would not get into a catch-22 under such
circumstances. However I don't have the ML post I read this in, and I
do not know whether the fix has been integrated into FreeBSD (though
this was a while ago, so I would have guess it had).
