Yup. Sure did.

I restarted the makehistory - this time using an example listed in
the man page: "makehistory -e -O -F  -l 30000"

I get TONS of these:

makehistory: Can't write overview data
makehistory: Can't write overview data

(I got 42739 of these before I aborted the makehistory).

So, any idea what could be causing this? The disk has plenty
of space (and available inodes):

sh-2.05$ pwd
sh-2.05$ du -sk .
