ext3 problem with loop devices?



Hello,

it seems I am having a problem with loop mounting on ext3. I am doing
this:

   - make an ext2 filesystem in a file
   - loop mount this file
   - write into the loop mounted file system
   - umount the file

Sometimes this works; occasionally the file remains empty after the
umount. A sync before the umount seems to help.

Is this a known problem?

Thanks,
Andreas.
