I tend to think the drive caused udev to lose its mind, but thats just a
SWAG at this point as I have not powered down and attached the drive to
another pair of currently unused cables hanging out that would be
sata-4. 5 is indeed a dvd writer If I properly recall which cable is
plugged in where. From what I am seeing, the cables could be swapped
and I don't recall doing it. Short term memory would be to blame in
that case, I'll need to get out a flashlight and verify in any event
since I don't trust my memory of something 3+ years old anyway.

Generally, I would assume it has an NTFS on it, and that is an option
rarely enabled in one of my home-brew kernels. This one however is a
Wheezy supplied kernel. A quick lsmod does not disclose any NTFS stuff
loaded after the log explosion.
I think I'll burn that cd of the seagate dos utils and see what it says,
which will entail a power down reboot if I put it on the spare cables,
or something along those lines that will force me to do a P.D. reboot.
Uptime is currently about 12 days. And we have at least 10 days before
Jessie is declared, so I haven't been in a life or death hurry. Since I
woke up this morning, which is a good sign at my age, I'll put that off
a few hours. ;-)
