If you actually had shared storage, and did this test, the results would be
the same.  ext3 is not a clustered filesystem.  It never expects the data
on disk to change out from under it, so it always trusts its cache.
In order to share storage between multiple machines, you need a clustered
filesystem, like GFS.
