    I found a couple of bad files at home.  One is 1mb, the other 17mb.  I
    use 21.4.1 on Linux (FC6) there.  There are definite good lines
    interspersed in between the junk.

Are the good lines complete?  Do they end with newlines?
Do they start with newlines?  At what kinds of points in the normal
and valid sequence of input does the junk get inserted?

    I can also say that the last bogus file in that directory definitely
    was written long after the last emacs crash I've had.

That doesn't surprise me, because we know that Emacs continued after
writing the junk, and wrote more good lines.
