------- Additional Comments From sandeen@xxxxxxx  2004-25-03 07:43 PDT -------
The linux 2.4 kernel really can't handle > 1T block devices.  You're
probably seeing something wrapping around 32 bits and clobbering the
filesystem.  If you really need > 1T, use 2.6 with CONFIG_LBD enabled.
This is a core kernel I/O path issue, not oan xfs issue.

See http://www.gelato.unsw.edu.au/IA64wiki/LargeBlockDevices
for more information.

If you can reproduce this with a filesystem < 1T, please re-open.
