Ok, now /var/run/samba is an ext3 filesystem -- and the problem is back again. 

So you could argue, "Ok, it's EVMS then which is the culprit," because 
filesystem is on an EVMS logical volume.

But I simply cannot believe this.

Why should Samba be the ONLY (apparent) application that doesn't feel happy with 
XFS over EVMS?

Any thoughts?
