Hm, this could be it, but it still sounds a bit unlikely.
The bug description implies that the filesystem would have to have been idling
from the point where the affected files were written until the point of the
system crash (or unclean unmount), such that the old, and by that time
incorrect, metadata updates would still linger in the journal, but that was
not really the case here. The filesystem was quite busy during those weeks....
Also, the bug report speaks only of zero-length files, while many of our files
had been truncated to lengths other than zero.
