LWN.net Weekly Edition for June 13, 2013
A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
So you end up with:
1. Space allocated for the new file.
2. Directory written to disk with new filename.
---- CRASH HAPPENS HERE
3. New file contents written to disk.

Did I miss something in the sequence?
Just don't allow step 2 to happen before step 3 and everyone would have been happy.
