It certainly should make it much easier to get a clue about what might 
be going on.  I'm a bit confused, however, as there are no (zero) source 
code changes between 3.50-pre23 and 3.50-release.  This might indicate a 
toolchain problem, so I'm going back to look at the archive binaries.

Certainly it ends up with a totally bogus sector count (whereas the LBA 
looks sane)... that also narrows it down tremendously.
