ok. but it didn't used to do this, then it started showing up errors on
/var, then /var and /tmp. meanwhile the 5 other partitions have never
showed up errors. (/tmp & /var i spose happen to be small and volatile,
but there is another small & volatile partition that doesn't show errors.
also, the same behaviour shows when i (think) get rid've processes using /tmp)
