Similar problem yesterday: this time I could stop KDE, and get a root
session. Killed all processes by hand, because one xfs partition was
still open despite "lsof" not showing anything. At last there were only
a handful processes open, I killed "rsyncd", and suddenly disk I/O was
100%, looks like it was writing a lot of buffers, the disk was about 15s
in full activity. I've seen this strange behaviour before (lot and long
disk activity on reboot), but only now I could trace it down to rsyncd.
I have rsyncd running here as a target, my server is backuped here once
per night. So it's strange to see it having "something" open. I've moved
the backup target dir to another partition now, to see if I can see that
