   exec >> /var/log/panic
   exec 2>&1
   echo `date` "-- trying to panic"
   while [ 1 ]
       /sbin/mount /backup/
       /bin/rm -rf /backup/foo
       /bin/cp -R /usr/bin /backup/foo
       /sbin/umount /backup/
       echo -n '.'

At this point our plan is to cross our fingers and wait for 6.1.

Thanks for all your efforts!
