In the SunOS 4.1.1 Release Manual on p. 104 it mentions "Error Messages
During Heavy Disk Activity (1036367) [4.1]" and goes on to describe the
exact error message I was receiving - thanks to Sue Bergquist for pointing
this out. Even though this is listed in the "4.1.1" release manual the
documentation indicates that this is an error in "4.1" also. I am running
4.1 on my Sun-4/490. The manual says these messages are related to heavy
disk activity and can be disregarded (sure!!). For now I'm going to let
it slide but if it keeps happening I'll have to do some disk-fixing.

Thanks to the following people for responding: (Claude Scarpelli) (Seth Bradley)
