2.1.44pre3 wasnt bad - in fact its been the best for a while. 2.1.44 is
a bit of a disaster. It doesnt boot, and on the odd combination of settings
that do boot it scrambles your disk

The responsible thing to do would surely to be to rename it 2.1.44pre4 before
it does further needless damage. I've no problem with 2.1.x having odd suprises
like sometimes eating bits of disks - it is test code, but now we know its
extremely dangerous moving it from the normal place would be smart.
