I just grep'd /var/log/* and the word "optimization" did not appear.

To you and others who have helped me, here's what I'm doing.

- tomorrow I am upgrading from 4.5 to 4.7
- once that proves stable, I'll increase the DIRHASH value appropriately.
- once that proves stable, I'll "tunefs -n enable /usr" to turn on soft

I'll report back with my experiences with the new configuration so that the
archive remains complete.

Thanks to everyone who helped.
