SubjectPossible e2fs bug.
Ran a recursive rm down a 30Mb source tree today. I ended up with a
nearly deleted tree and an "rm" process that just kept on
running. The tree was removed with another rm, and the filesystem
itself proved clean enough.

The process was stuck in a loop somewhere in Kernel-land I assume, as
I couldn't terminate it. Ended up changing into single user mode to
unmount and fsck the filesystem. Still had this damn rm running chewing
up all idle CPU time.

*cough* Haven't been forced to reboot my linux system in a long, long
time. Might be about time for the patches to start flowing.

rm - fileutils 3.12 (latest AFAIK)
kernel - 2.0.0
