	I think this is a good thing.  Except that it appears that
2.2.1 might be very important for the SPARC architecture. (See
Steve Dunham's post below)  If the  Sparc kernel has the bug,
I don't know.

	Many people say. "I've been running it for weeks..."
Well, I ran it for at lease a  week, before it happened to me too. It 
is a widely reported bug, it is real.   Note that Vincent 
Renardais trashed a partition with it, as well. 
I am going to the kernel archives now to see if it was perhaps
i386 specific.
