>Is btrfs becoming more common ?
In my impression: Yes. Also, this problem seems to affect also zfs and 
thus all (?) file systems that support checksums and scrubbing in linux; 
consequently all filesystems that are the choice of users who need this 
for ensuring data consistency.

Ah, yes.
OMV intended to move to btrfs as the only choice with the next version. 
In order to pave the way, I intended to be an early adopter. The problem 
I report here, that there is good reason to.

Glad to hear that.

My intent is not to solve *my* problem, but to make developers aware of 
this issue and help getting this issue fixed.

I feel a bit helpless though, as I perceive a lack of interest...
I mean... This Bug is now celebrating its 5th aniversary.
