It's fragmented and run out of blocks.  Here's the last line
from `fsck'...

  442062 files, 2924823 used, 1207043 free (1207043 frags, 0 blocks, 29.2% fragmentation)

I've seen filesystems run out of inodes, but never get fragmented
like that.  Looks like I'll have to newfs it with different parameters.
