I haven't seen this happen since around the time I originally posted, so it's a concern for me, but hasn't been a pressing issue.  It also doesn't help that I don't have a reliable way to reproduce it, which would be the first step in being able to get help from the devs to track this issue down.

I've been pretty careful since then, though, to try to reduce any instances of high disk activity to avoid the problem.  I suppose it might be reproducible if I nail my array with activity...  I'll see if I can find some time this weekend to abuse things other than my landscaping.

To any of the dev types out there:  What's a good first guess at the appropriate flags for log output to try testing with?  I'd like to avoid a lot of cycles of going back for more if it can be avoided.  :)
