Thanks for responding.
There is no problem with filespace. I have tried "reconstruct" and that hangs
too. I have also found that "quota" hangs as well. While they are hung they
are not using CPU.
I am planning to patch reconstruct to put some diagnostics in to see if I can
find where the hang occurs.
Any other suggestions would be welcome.
