Thomas, if you still have the source tree that was used to make this
kernel, can you please let me know which version of
cmd/xfs/repair/phase2.c you have?

The symptoms sound exactly like the problem Steve's take was aiming
to fix, namely

        - repair (introduces error)
        - mount
        - umount
        - mount (2nd mount sees error)

His fix was rev 1.30 of cmd/xfs/repair/phase2.c checked into the
internal RCS tree at 11:42am PDT on Fri 9/8 ... it would not have
appeared in the CVS tree until sometime later.

Just a FYI/ Reminder here:
The CVS tree version numbers are same as the "internal" version numbers.

Also the tree is synced every hour, so any "TAKE" messages posted to the list shows
up fairly quickly in the cvs repository.
