Subjectext2 file type errors
hi,

I have observed this problem for several months, every time I run
e2fsck on my filesystems i get the following output:

/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'showq' in
/spool/postfix/public (45244) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'cleanup' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'rewrite' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'bounce' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'defer' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'smtp' in /spool/postfix/private (100745)
to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'error' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'local' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'cyrus' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'uucp' in /spool/postfix/private (100745)
to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'ifmail' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: Setting filetype for entry 'bsmtp' in
/spool/postfix/private (100745) to 6.
/dev/hda7: 3665/102800 files (1.6% non-contiguous), 69820/409601 blocks

these are all socket files.

note this is only my /var filesystem, I also get the same messages on
/tmp for xfs socket files, and occasionally the root filesystem for
/dev/log (but oddly enough / is the only filesystem to not
consistently show this problem) so I do not think it has anything to
do with postfix, it just happens to create the most socket files.

now if i drop to single user mode fsck /var i get those errors, if a
fsck a second time its clean. go back to multiuser mode, then
immediately drop back to single, run fsck again the errors return...

I have seen this behavior under kernel 2.2.12, 2.2.13, and 2.2.14 on
two separate x86 based machines (one Pentium the other a celeron 466)
and on a PowerPC G3. I have used e2fs utils 1.17 and 1.18 currently.
all systems are running Debian `potato'.
