When I reverted to -stable, I had fsck come up with a long list of
complaints about snapshot files which should have been deleted long
ago. Probably they were caused by a failed background fsck under
-current (I had an unexpected softupdates inconsistency on the
partition due to a kernel panic, and background fsck would just wedge
the entire machine when trying to deal with it). However, I don't
know why they weren't dealt with by fsck under -current.
