Yes, that works. I should avoid replies at ~4am local time, clearly sleep
was required at that time rather than responding to e-mail.

I don't know about you, but I typically only run the tests in the
default /tmp directory which is typically either a ufs (which is the
filesystem type I normally use for the repository anyway) or a memory
filesystem. I suppose we should encourage folks to run the tests in the
filesystems they are going to use...
