Yeah, Derrick has a good point here.   I shouldn't have been so
blase'. First try to find out what it is.  Hopefully you're regularly
keeping track of what volumes are on your servers.

It's just that 99% of the time I've had this happen it's been a junk
volume.  But that doesn't mean it will always be so quick to brush off
it being a valid but corrupted volume.

Sorry about that.
