Just to let you know, I did a cvs checkout of xfs-cmds
as described on

Then I saved the patch from using the
"Original" link on hat page.

I build a xfs_Repair binary using that, transferred it onto an old
KLAX boot cd I had and repaired the XFS root on my laptop.

I got 5000 files in lost and found, mostly the whole manpages from my
system. Had to reinstall a few packages to restore lost binaries, but
that's all.

When will that horrible bug be fixed in 2.6.x?
