Re: Lost file-system story

>> More later ...

I installed OpenBSD 5.0 on the same machine, similar setup (all
filesystems noatime except /tmp and /home, which are both
async,noatime). I repeated my experiment -- wrote a new file in my
home directory, waited a few minutes, and killed the power. On reboot,
there were complaints from the fscks, async and not, all fixed. The
system came up without a manual fsck and the new file was present in
my directory. So meta-data for async filesystems is being written
within a window of a handful of minutes with OpenBSD.
