I have a 1 Tbyte drive which has been reporting exactly 1 bad sector for
at least the last 6 months.  It always shows up on the gnome panel as
the drive troubles applet (no name -- it doesn't identify itself), and
every few days I check it.  Always exactly 1 bad sector.

I ought to fix it so as to report only increases in the number of bad
sectors, but I probably never will.
If you could find that bad sector and rewrite it, then the drive would
remap it to a spare sector and you wouldn't be bothered by it any more.
Tracking those down can be just _tons_ of fun, and sometimes you learn
more about filesystem structure than you ever wanted to know.
