	That's great news.  I believe this applies to me just fine and I
can turn off the checksum.  Quick question....can anyone explain to me
when the data in a file might change without changing the mtime, ctime or
size?  I'm not sure I've ever come across that before.  An example might
help me determine if I can safely remove -c.

Tim, thanks for the reply!
