the point is that if i have the sub drive connected the disck cache grows
up to whatever limit and everything stop working i even got java.lang.OutOfMemory from tomcat

i forgot to tell that the problem is the same if i use the local hd
or the dvd

Is DMA enabled for your drives (you can check with hdparm)?
