Ugh, I figured out how this was caused, and its somewhat pathological.

What the script should have been doing was two parallel fsx's
one on hdb1 and the other on hdb2. Mounted on /mnt/test-hdb1 and
Due to a screwup in the script I wrote, both were mounting on /mnt/test

net result: chaos as 1 fsx process had another mount another
partition over the top of it.

With the script corrected, it seems to be playing well.
