    Is this perhaps on a laptop? Some scripts for laptop use configure
    insanely long data flush times to conserve HD spin time. Sometimes
    it is even completely turned off (laptop mode). The extent
    flush is dependent on the configured bdflush or pdflushd data
    timeouts.

    The truncate is independent from this because it is flushed with a
    different path.
