Don't panic about the hdd, what was the quote 200,000 bad shut-downs before
a problem may occur.
Someone else estimated 1:40 were bad, that's 200,000*40 = 8Million power
downs, that's 5 power down per day every day for about 5,000 years.
If you ever read the side-effects of Asprin and see "possible side effect:
headaches" you will have a marker for how cautious this update is.
This is a a major refinement, not a basic requirement ;)
