Thanks for the info.

As i failed to find it myself: Do you know a link or man page
where this is specified ?

After all it imposes massive performance penalties which made
me suspicious on the first hand. Does nobody else complain ?

What do the big guys use instead ?
(I used Reiser FS for the last years. My older ext2 instances
 never had to stand that workload.)

Thanks again.
It would last a while to find all pwd pointing into it,
but elsewise it is a mere data partition and could be
umounted without reboot.

Have a nice day :)
