Darn, I even did 'cd /' and then ran it or 'cd /mnt/cdrom' then ran it but
got the same ./usr/libexec etc junk.  I have to run the grep while
"standing" in a non root-mounted locale I suppose??

Great.  *sarcasm* So we've found it.  It's there, we know it's there, but I
don't know which file it is in!  Ugh ugh ugh.  Kill me!

I wonder what it meant by child died and previous errors.  At startup, I
figured out how to press F2 and go into an interactive, "expert" as it was
called mode of bootup / kernel loading process.  There have been ide-scsi
errors and kernel panics in the past so I pressed 'n' to not load any scsi

However, oddly enough, my "dmesg" output is replete (full of) weird ide and
scsi error messages.  Could they be what tar/gzip is talking about?  There
is a random timer probably counting down to my next kernel panic from this
Knoppix 3.2 Debian Linux CD-R I am booted up into!!  I better scoot.  Help.
