And yes, I would recommend xfs - noticeably faster than ext3, and no sign of any mysterious hangs under load.

I was thinking about the reported mini-hangs that folks are seeing with jfs, except the all important keyword "jfs" didnt make it out of my head and into the 2nd bit of the message :-( Sorry for the confusion.

So I meant "faster that ext3, and without strange mini hangs like jfs...".

The hangs you are having are due to several issues... one of them is the way ext3 syncs.

Never suffered this personally, it was an unexpected filesystem corruption with ext3 that "encouraged" me to try out xfs instead.

best wishes
