        I was truthfully only going by what I believed it was saying, that
it was really modifying them.

        I upgraded fetchyahoo tonite after I emailed this, and if I do an
"ls -lt" in /var/db/pkg I see :

        I thought the timestamp of a directory only changes if a
file was added or modified in the directory. 

        If I do the "ls -lt */\+CONTENTS", I see :

        So I'm still going with the file being modified. I guess even if
its opening the file, reading it, and then writing it back out unmodified,
its still disk operations that the CF especially can't handle. (Then again,
the laptop isn't doing too well. 

Aug  6 01:45:53 himinbjorg smartd[727]: Device: /dev/ad0, 2 Currently 
unreadable (pending) sectors
Aug  6 01:45:53 himinbjorg smartd[727]: Device: /dev/ad0, 3 Offline 
uncorrectable sectors

        (Thats only started too since it was pounded during Xorg upgrade)

        I still really would only like it to touch the files it REALLY
needs to. 

                        Thanks, Tuc
