I'm running redhat 7.1, using a vanilla kernel 2.4.3, with the 2.4.3 core
and kernel xfs tarballs. XFS release 1.0.
I backup the files, using 'tar -jcf <tarball>.tar.bz2 <directory>' and untar
them in the same way.

No, it doesn't persist... but the system is unusable.
I unmount the directory, and the moment I remount it... the system hangs
up. bad(tm). I need to reboot the system, and it will come up... some
hassle as the file systems need to be checked, but the red hat boot script
can't handle the xfs system, making me end up checking the file systems
After that, I remount the xfs file system and it shows normal sizes....
after a few minutes of running, the system hangs up again. The same
behaviour the kernel had, before I added ACL support into it. The system
continues to behave this way...
The file system, that contains the tarball, is also an xfs. That file
system has only the base directory, and file sizes are normal. The system
also works fine with it mounted...
