    Maybe my problem is unrelated to this, but when I try to mount an ext2
    image (from an ext3 filesystem, if that counts), loop0 starts to eat
    CPU, and brings up the load to around 2.90. After a short time (about
    a minute after mounting the image), everything that tries to access
    the mounted area hangs. I can't umount it, and can't kill the
    processes which are trying to access it.

    I have this problem since 2.4.16, 2.4.14 (with ext3 0.9.15) works
    fine.
