maybe none, it was just a wild guess.  :)  I've seen a bug on ext3,
volumes > 2T corrupted, on an areca controller.  Due to the 2T
threshold, it seems more like a lower layer IO issue (2^32 x 512) than a
filesystem issue... googling a bit I found others with problems on
areca, but then that's what I googled for, so I might have
self-selected.  So, maybe nothing, I was just looking for a 3rd data point.
