 There may be other issues. There were a bunch of stability fixes to
 tmpfs last fall; I thought many of them had gotten into 6.x but I'm
 told not. (rmind@ says he doesn't have time but can help out...)
 However, none of them AFAIK have been merged into 5.x, so there are a
 bunch of things that could have bitten you.

 That seems reasonable. We are hoping to get 7.x branched any month

 all that worthwhile.
