Appears fixed upstream.  Still unhappy on 2.6.18-194.el5.

Guessing it's the same as https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15230
likely fixed by my commit at http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=15121c18a22ae483279f76dc9e554334b800d0f7

.... yep confirmed.

We'll get that fixed for 5.6, thanks.

This is actually a kernel bug, sorry I missed that it was filed for e4fsprogs.

Comment 4 Eric Sandeen 2010-08-05 20:10:28 UTC
Actually, Jack - what error messages are you getting when you do this?  You may actually be hitting bug #614957 ... in fact I think that's almost certainly it.


Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2010-09-01 18:15:17 UTC
Ping, Jack?  What error messages are you getting?  Lacking response I may just dup this to 614957.
