Hmm, yes, the 20010812 snapshot works correctly.  I just diff'd the two
snapshots, and would have to say that the problems I experienced did not
result from anything in the MTD code, so don't trouble yourself with
what went wrong.  I must have accidentally whacked something without
noticing.  My apologies for wasting your time.

Ah!  Now I see how this all fits together.  Many thanks, and I will
certainly write up my experiences for the HowTo.  Incidentally, for
anyone else trying this, it would serve them well to back up the
bad blocks section of their DOC before doing *anything*.  I seem
to have killed my DOC by overwriting it, without a backup (fortunately,
I can just get another from work, but not everyone has that
