I am one of the people who have been seeing this problem. I would be
very surprised if it was an ext2 problem, as the only ext2 filesystem
on my disk contains all of /boot. No programs, no news spool on ext2 -
nada. I use reiserfs for all of that.

But I'll see if I can get around to test pre8-2 tomorrow. right now,
I need some sleep :-)
