SubjectRe: sync problem in 2.2.5
Worked!!!

All I did is to remove the /quota* files and then quotaoff -a

No more problems... so far

I have tryied what normally locks up systematicaly the sync command.
While heavy Disk IO doing a sync and no more problems.

So I really, so far, suspect problems in the quota code in the kernel.

Can somebody verify that and confirm my problem?

Thanks
Andre
