    SubjectRe: Unknown Issue.
    My first thought is that perhaps the filesystem has shut down due to 
    some error (memory corruption, bad disk, xfs bug...); did you check your
    log messages?

    Justin, when you mentioned that you used xfs' fsck, I guess you used
    xfs_repair. Was the log clean when you ran it, or did you force repair
    to zero out the log? That could explain the large lost+found/ when you
    were done...

    Patrick, can you reproduce on a non-gentoo kernel? That'd be the first
    step for this audience.
