apparently people get occasional filesystem corruption when copying
larger files around.  its always been rather shady since nobody really
gives a damn about it.  which is why something as important as the
kernels should not live on HFS.  and bootloaders should live on a
never mounted tiny HFS partition managed by hfsutils or preferably

it comes up on irc here and there.
