That is right, that is why we are not using ext2 (which is POSIX-compliant), FreeBSD (which is POSIX-compliant) or even Windows Vista (which can be made to be POSIX-compliant). We are running a journalling file system in the (apparently silly) hope that the system will hold our data and then give it back.
