Ah, yes indeed. I had another issue earlier on the same filesystem and
Christoph told me that I may have run out of inode attributes.
xfs_info reports isize=256 for this filesystem and now that I'm using
xattr even more (I'm storing sha256 checksum plus the filename in each
file's xattr) this looks like it might exceed the literal area after all.

Yeah, next time I'll have to take this into consideration, but the fs was
created long ago and I didn't plan to use xattr. Now I do but mkfs is not
an option right now.
Thanks for the insight,

Due to Federal Budget problems we have been forced to cut back on the number of
users able to access the system at one time. (namely none allowed....)
