I do know that XFS don't work (in the long run). My /vicepa is
on XFS, and I had to restart the OpenAFS server every now and
then (I got garbage when doing a ls in AFS space). Now I have
a /vicepb, where all my volumes (exept root.*) is located. I
don't do any WRITEs on /vicepa, so hopfully I won't have a
problem any more... The idea is to move EVERYTHING to /vicepb, but
I'm not quite sure if I can just move the root* volumes and
dismounting (reformating) /vicepa...

Same reasons I think. I'm not quite sure if it was because /vicepa
was on XFS or if the cache where. BOTH are now on ext2, and seems
to work much better...
