  Good.  I think there are two independent factors explaining your
following report:

  Note: GNUmach uses Linux's device drivers.  I've gotten errors like
this before with Linux, and in each case the drive eventually gives
out.  Don't trust me on this one, though: do you get these errors
under Linux?  Try some e2fsck's, maybe with the '-c' option (badblock
check), and maybe write some bigish files, see whether these errors
come up.

  I've told others this before (and so I hope it's true :) ) GNUmach
reports an error like this in case the drive has an extended
partition.  I get this every time too, and it's non-fatal, and maybe
also insignificant.  (You might want to do a mailing list archive
search for some discussion of this by the Real Hurd Hackers; I think
it's a bug in GNUmach that hasn't been important enough to fix.)

  Happy Hurding :)
