Martin,

thanks for your help. I did use both 2.6.17.1 and 2.6.17.3 before
2.6.17.9... So I guess (hope) that's the problem, and not my memory... 

I have run xfs_repair 2.8.11 on two filesystems with errors (luckily,
neither my /home nor my backup partition seems to be hit), and it find
some errors, but if I run it again, I finds the same errors over and
over again... I seem to have it up and running again now, but I really
don't like that xfs_repair shows a lot of errors on each run. Don't like
that at all... It says it has fixed the errors, but I just never get rid
of them.

Is that normal? Guess not. And is it something that can happen with the
directory corruption bug? I read that I needed to have xfsprogs >2.8.10,
but that didn't help neither...

Best regards,
Stian
