Yes, but only on the data partition exported via Samba. It's 4 x 120GB
Maxtor SATA discs on a HighPoint RocketRAID 1540 controller.

The system disc is an old 9GB IDE on the onboard Intel ATA controller.

If this is gvinum-related it would explain why I can buildworld without
problems but not fill the RAID-5 partition with data without getting it
corrupted. Pretty big "IF" still though.
