I base my assumption on the fact that I work at a company that has *hundreds*
of FBSD boxen, all of which arew on WD for the reasons I have gone into.  I
figure if we'vew done this, it is reasonable to assume others have too.  And
after looking through the archives first, there was a lot of anecdotal
evidence supporting this theory.

Oddly enough, I can say with authority that these issues don't show up until
the disk has been in use, and starts to hit the ~40-60% usage mark.  Prior to
that, it's fine.

Gladly, if it will be shipped back when done.  In fact, I'll ship two.  The
"standard build" here, which is a PPRo and the "current" which is an Asus SiS
based board with a PIII-866.
