Hi Jens
I've upgrade to the latest fio version in the git repo 1.51 and I'm
still seeing this problem.

Fio gets stuck after it writes the 100% complete message and strace on
the processes shows this.

the controlling fio process :-
...
[pid 8439] wait4(8442, 0x7fff848203ac, WNOHANG, NULL) = 0
[pid 8439] nanosleep({0, 10000000}, NULL) = 0
[pid 8439] wait4(8441, 0x7fff848203ac, WNOHANG, NULL) = 0
[pid 8439] wait4(8442, 0x7fff848203ac, WNOHANG, NULL) = 0
[pid 8439] nanosleep({0, 10000000}
& the 2 workers are both stopped here, strace shows only the one line
for each process.

Process 8441 attached - interrupt to quit
futex(0x7f9db76a802c, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 2, NULL


Process 8442 attached - interrupt to quit
futex(0x7f9db76a802c, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 2, NULL

How do I find out which futex it's waiting for?
Any ideas where I should look next ?

I can run the same test successfully on 2.6.38 so is it worth trying to
bisect this ?

thanks
Richard
