These are some of the messages we get pasted across one of our servers
screen. Quotas seem to be totally horked... the only solution I have
found is to blow away the quota files. I have read that if `repquota
-uga` segfaults, this is an indication of corruption. It does segfault.
There is a fix, however, what I am wondering is why this happens. We
are running EXT3 filesystem on a server with 3000+ users on. It is not
convient to blast quotas and recreate them every week.
Problem also seen on another system.
Messages says same thing. Here is an example from the repquota:
#179 +- 750780417 179 179 none 179 179 179 none
#179 +- 754974721 180 180 none 0 179 179
Note those two huge blocksizes there.
Bumping to high priority as it is repro'd on multiple systems.
This does not appear on later releases
