Yes, thanks Ken.  I watched wipe go through clearing an SSH drive when
setting up a quick test of Kali Linux on a new laptop.  It was slow, but
it worked -- when it finished, Kali had trouble allocating /itself/
enough root file system space, so I had to manually partition and try again.

Anyway, wipe is best run early.  I'll keep wipe in mind and the other
tools too if the /dev/zero write gives more grief.

It's still a bit too early to tell, but the /dev/zero writing is okay so
far, but a little less than an hour in as I type ....  for the first
crypt volume.

Cheers and Thanks
