Anyone seen PG filling up a 66 GB partition from say 40-ish percentage to
60-ish percentage in a manner of minutes. When I run a 'fsck' the disk usage
comes down to 40-ish percentage. That's about 10+ GB's variance.

This is a FreeBSD 6.2 RC2, 4GB memory, Xeon 3.2 GHz '4' of the '8' CPUs in
use - dual cpu, dual core with HTT turned off in the sense that the other 4
cpu's have been masked out. The drive is a Western Digital 70 GB SATA.
