It has hung, but only after I've got the corruption. Probably due to heat, I
don't know and don't particularly care, because it runs 99.9% of the time,
and there's nothing I can do about the heat, short of ripping out a couple
of hard drives, getting a bigger case and rearranging stuff.
As for the null bytes, I knew what I was in for when I started tracking XFS
