SUMMARY: ufs_readir: bad dir

Well, the problem seems to have been a bunch of corrupted inodes.  When I 
took the machine down to single-user mode and ran fsck, I found many, many 
errors.  I ended up fixing the filesystem, then removing all the files and 
restoring them from a backup.  Fortunately, the only thing on this 
partition was my /user/openwin directory.

Thanks to Tim Villa for trying to help out, and giving me some sanity checks.
