Filesystem level interaction via bonnie++. Basic repro is, using ccaputo
mke2fs -j -L /xxx /dev/sdb1
mount -t ext2 /dev/sdb1 /xxx
cd /xxx ; mkdir ccaputo ; chown ccaputo ccaputo ; cd ccaputo ; su ccaputo
Filesystem is believed to be sound since it is from a fresh mke2fs.
The one strange thing I do is that I format it as ext3 (-j) but mount it
as ext2, but I didn't think that would be an issue and I'd be surprised if
Erich is doing the same in his tests, which also fail, with ext2. (I do
it in case I later decide to mount the volume as ext3.)
