(If I'm the only one to debug with ears, please excuse)
I think that "df" makes more noise on my harddisk than previous (i.e.
2.0.30) kernels.

Can it be that some metadata is never written back to disk unless a
"df" (or manual sync()) is done? My ears suggest that more data is
written back now...

Maybe someone can check it. And you can send me the CD "The sounds of
the most popular harddisks"... ;-)
