Turned out it did, but with a higher threshold.
As soon as we started testing with files > 100Mb the same behaviour
came up again.
It turned out to be another bug related to reiserfs.
For those interested more data is here:
In short: Although reiserfs reports in it's FAQ that it supports
filesystems up to 16Tb with the default options (4K blocks) it
supports only 8Tb. It doesn't fail however and appears to work
correctly when using the local filesystem, the problems start showing
up when using NFS
I fixed the problem by using another filesystem. Based on comments on
the nfs-ml and the excellent article in last months linuxgazette we
switched to jfs.
So far it's holding up very good. We haven't seen the problems
reappearing with files in excess of 1Gb
Thanx for the help though.
Change what you're saying,
Don't change what you said
