I have sent this to the ReiserFS people in case it might be of any interest to 

I'm not sending it to you, too in case it is of interest to you.

I should point out that I have _no_ idea if the effect is entirely to do the 
fielsystem, entirely due to the su-utils, or is a compination of both.

Since the issue is not an actual problem for me currently, I do not have any 
incentive to test it on another FS.

I could see however that this _could_ be a potential problem, if there were 
other "unknown" things in the directory that some one wanted to keep.

However if there are any test you would like me to run, please let me know. I 
can also send you a compressed tar archive if you'd like.

Some specs I forgot from the first message:

Dell PowerEdge 6450
SuSE Linux 8.0
kernel 2.4.18 (Stock SuSE default)
over 100 GB free disk space (~110 total)


This may be a bug with sh-utils, however I thought I would report it here in 
case there's any interest in it. 
This is on a RAID5 setup of 6 U160 SCSI drives in a Dell Quad-Xeon PowerEdge 
6450, 8GB RAM.

I got this directory [and it's contents] by writting a script that runs 
bonnie++ in an infinite loop (I was attempting to stress-test the server)

The directory it's self is not large, however it contains many thousand small 
log files ( I had not idea it was going to do that :-) )
If you want a tarball of the dior, just let me know.

cp001:~ # du -sh bonnietmp.old/ ; ls bonnietmp.old/*log* ; rm -rf 
43M     bonnietmp.old
bash: /bin/ls: Argument list too long
bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long
cp001:~ #

I just found it somewhat interesting. Probably nothing you haven't seen before 
but ya never know.

Thanks, hope I didn't waste your time....
