strange indeed, but since you're using LVM (right?) - did you double-check
your setup and if your target disk is really big enough for
/dev/VGforMyth/video ?

are you sure that this is an XFS filesystem? perhaps you could post the
fstab line of how /dev/VGforMyth/video was actually mounted. and you can
try to use xfs_logprint to see if any ERROR messages pop up.
