Thanks for caring.

I've got another one: In abrt-2.1.4-1.fc17.i686, the ghost files 
/var/run/abrt/abrt.socket and /var/run/abrt/abrtd.pid both have inode 0 
and link count 2.  But they can't be hard-linked because one has mode 
666, and the other mode 644.  This throws my hard link detection logic 
off course.  (I will disable it for zero inodes.)
