afaik, none of the *nix filesystems need to be defragmented.  they're 
all pretty good about keeping fragmentation down below 1%.

"thrashing around" could just be the filesystem shuffling things around 
to prevent fragmentation.  or maybe they just hit some kind of "full" 
threshhold that ends up with more noisy operations.
