On Friday May 31st, Baserock 8 was released.  Unfortunately due to a bug in the
conversion tool used to create the VirtualBox .vdi disk images, anyone using
VirtualBox would have experienced unpredictable failures in the system.

Some of these failures manifested in segmentation faults, btrfs checksum
failures or simply programs that misbehaved in confusing ways.

If you downloaded any of the Baserock 8 .vdi files generated on Friday then you
may encounter these problems.

The .vdi files have now been regenerated and tested to ensure that the problem
has been remedied.  The download targets have been replaced.  You can ensure
that you have the correct versions by using the md5sum program to determine the
checksum of the downloaded .vdi.gz files.  The corrected ones have the
following checksums:
