If you shut down an XFS filesystem improperly, when it comes back up it may claim that recent files exist and even have the expected size -- but when you try to read them you might get zero blocks instead of real data. I believe JFS does the same thing.
Is it any wonder, then, that XFS and JFS are seldom used despite their otherwise-wonderful characteristics?
