please make sure you use the latest drbd (at least svn revision 1439,
which is 0.7.0.tgz iirc) THIS IS IMPORTANT! if you use anything
before that, you will have lots of problems... btw, modinfo drbd
should tell you the revision, and some other things.
if you get problems with protocol B, try to reproduce in C, too.
note that currently xfs seems to still have lots of problems anyways...
I know because I know the SuSE kernel-of-the-day, and they have many
patches for xfs in there, too.

definetely not :)
if you still can reproduce this with the very latest drbd, and
protocol C tell me. if it happens only with protocol != C (and
very latest drbd), tell me that, too.
if it only happens with something that is not latest drbd,
fine. than you just confirm that we fixed a bug...
