#1990 closed defect (incomplete)

Write lost my document, twice

Reported by: bemasc Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified

Cc: Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


On Sugar 0.84.15, under OLPC XO-1.5 build 121, I created a Write document, wrote in several lnes of text, and closed it. Upon reopening it later, it contained only the letter "T". I re-edited the file, typing in a paragraph of text. Upon reopening it on another day, it was again found to contain only the letter "T".

The disk was not full (655 MB free), and the journal contains only 8 items. The build is essentially unmodified. I have not subsequently been able to reproduce the error, even by editing the same document containing only the letter T. Edits to this document are now saved and reloaded successfully.

The behavior might possibly be explained by a crashed datastore daemon, a disk suddenly remounted read-only after an I/O error, or a failure to flush a writeback cache during clean shutdown.
