I don't know how exactly to descibe this problem,
but dbench starts reporting errors under some circumstances.
AFAIK, this is related to the xfs-cmds version used
to mkfs/mount/repair (etc.) the file system.
Using the same kernel, dbench would run fine when
1.0.2 version of the xfs-cmds is used, but reports
errors when 1.0.4 version (as of today) of xfs-cmds is used.

Actually, the problem still exists. I was just
saying that something makes the symptoms go away.
In fact, chait & I were running some reasonably
heavy dbench tests (at 96 clients) and the random
failures started happening ... this is on Chait's
test system with lots of memory ("sierra"). Earlier
today dbench had completed several runs successfully.
