DELETE DIRECTORY goes beserk
Recently, we generated an 8.1 world for our site. Today I copied it to
the namespace server machine and it seemed to run properly. Later, I
started to do some disk deletions. In particular, I did a DELETE DIRECTORY.
It not only deleted (and expunged) the specified directory and all of its
descendants it deleted some (not all) sibling directories and all of their
descendants. I tried an experiment: I did a DELETE DIRECTORY on another
directory and specified the :CONFIRM EACH option so I could see what it was
about to do. Once again, it was screwing some of the sibs, nieces, nephews,
etc. (I stopped the delete at this point.) I also ran the disk salvager
and it found nothing unusual.
Anbody having (had) a similar experience? Should I suspect 8.1, the world
on this machine, this machine (a 3670 by the way), its disk? Any clues
