Uwe, another user has run across a similar problem, and I think both of your
issues are related. Is there any feasible way for me to have at least a copy
of the rev file (143)? I'd be willing to sign an NDA. I think there might
be an issue in the FSFS code, and I'd love to get to the bottom of it.

Alternately, I can provide you with a python script, and have you do a few
things with a copy of the file for me. The script will produce a large
amount of output, but none of it contains the actual file contents. Only
file and directory names involved in the commit would be revealed. It would
take longer to inspect the situation, but it would still be very useful.

For information about the other user's issue, take a look at:
