So I learn from you/WB that I goofed up  : - )

My /rescue indeed now has all files therein as separate files (unique 
inodes). If the system has any more hard links, then my box would be 
hosting them as separate files.

Is it okay if I keep using this box as-is-now (no hard links) ? The box 
runs fantastically well.
