Any errors in the system logs?  I'd try most recent xfs_repair next.  If
that doesn't fix it, make an xfs_metadump for Barry to look at.  :)
Make a backup first if you're paranoid.

Hi again,

Using a 2.6.23 kernel and after a clean xfs_repair-2.9.4 run I can't
remove that file:

sylla:/# rm /lost+found/3912672557
rm: cannot remove `/lost+found/3912672557': Operation not permitted

sylla:/# ls -li /lost+found/3912672557
3912672557 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2006-04-09 19:10 /lost+found/3912672557 -> unix.7.gz

Can you apply the patch in
and run the patched repair on your filesytem?
