First enter a device? If you're adding a brand-new device it should be 
freshly formatted? :) MogileFS is flexible about not caring how the 
device was initialized (or even if it has other data on it), so it's 
pretty nice to ignore that.

Having lost files in the middle of the device that are unlinked 
everywhere else is bad tho. Fsck could probably have a scrubber mode 
you'd run once in a while, while these bugs are fixed.

Or are you referring to something else?
