2.4.0/2.4.1 crashes in ext2

Ok, here's the crash I'm getting in 2.4.0. Same thing is happening in 2.4.1,
but It's dying harder so getting syslog info out is tougher.

Looks like it's trying to write WAY past the end of a drive (from some messages
that unfortunatly did not get logged, but were scrolling on the screen) but I'm
not sure if that's the cause or result of the oops.

The only thing different on this machine from my others running 2.4.1 is that
this one is actually using large files. lots of them, all the time. So that'd
be my first guess.

I made sure to compile 2.4.1 with 2.91.2, no change.

I get about 5-10 minutes of runtime on a full-feed newsserver before it
crashes. Need to figure this out quickly, please.
