We have fixed a number of bugs with GFS2 over the last few weeks, so
would point at GFS2 as being the issue.  Pick up the latest kernel from
Steve Whitehouses GIT tree.  It has a number of fixes, with a number of
additional ones queued up to be pushed shortly.

If you need a stable environment at this time, use GFS1 instead of gfs2.



Thank you for the valuable insight!

I used the updated gfs2 RPM that was updated for FC6.  Would you suggest
using FC5 with  gfs1 or is there a gfs1 RPM someplace for FC6?  I tried
to compile the code myself with limited success.
