Hmm ... is there any reason for not raising this value a bit? With Linux
9GB is fine but on MaxOSX 9GB is not enough. The "Finder" which is used
by ~100% of all mac-users, will never copy a file bigger than the
free blocks * block size into any filesystem. This is why I always have to
patch and repack openafs for my 100GB-video-file-users (free size set to
1TB). Is there a chance to set the free blocks in the official openafs to
a higher value?
