<youpi> azeem: I think I found why apt-get throws Hurd down sometimes
<youpi> the problem is that it basically write(file, 20MB); fsync();
<youpi> i.e. it throws a storm of dirty-writeback to ext2fs
<youpi> which thus goes into throttling threads
<youpi> since posix explicitely says that fsync() can be void, I think  I'll patch apt-get on the buildd
<youpi> (that bug has bitten me too many times in the past days to let it go further)
<youpi> for now it works
