    Subjectsync problem in 2.2.5

    Hi all,

    Since 2.2.? I have been having a lot of problem using the sync command.

    It "hang" my system and sometimes just the window from which I'm running
    the command "sync".

    It is very consistant (works fine 1 out of 4).

    The major difference is that I rencently installed vmware which runs
    with nice -19
    But I don't see how could that affect the sync command except for the
    fac that it is very "io consuming".



    Here are some information that can be usefull;
