Subjectdata loss in 2.6.9-rc1-mm1
Hi!

I've hit the following data loss problem under 2.6.9-rc1-mm1.

If I copy data from a file to another the target will be smaller then
the source file.

2.6.9-rc1 does not have this problem
2.6.8.1-mm4 does not have this problem
2.6.9-rc1-mm1 _does have_ this problem

I tried this with reiserfs and xfs and it happened with both of them.

See the testcase at the bottom of this mail.

Thanks in advance,
Gergely
