here's what I got from Nathan on the linux-xfs mailing list. As I have
no idea what maildiraclttest does, nor can make sense of strace output,
I was hoping you could help us out here...
Gzipped strace output of maildiraclttest attached.
thanks in advance,
(repeat send so this is on the two lists as well)

What does "maildiraclttest" do? strace of the above?
More info needed...
The portion of the code in question makes some internal library calls
whose intended effect is to cause certain content to be written out to
certain files. It then verifies whether the expected files actually exist.
OK, will need more details than that though... what library?
which calls? which files? how are they written? etc.
However, I don't see how LVM could possibly be a factor. LVM should not
make any difference, as long as you're using the same filesystem on top.
But, say, if it's ext3 in one case, and something else (reiser? xfs?)
in the other case, then you'll might be onto something.
Sounds a little like the grub-bug - data not being written?
Sounds unrelated, I'd guess (by the name of that program) this
has something to do with permissions/ACLs.
