Our beams crossed, Jas, Ghostbusters say that's dangerous ;)

My bad on the BTRFS reference, #3.

I would reference it in the title, or certainly the first Post, so that helpers are alerted straight away.

So I wasn't aware that standard Linux/Unix disk utilities are problematic with BTRFS. So perhaps I was somewhat mistaken in my interpretation!
I wasn't either until I was when looking around for information about BTRFS.
