OK, thanks, we'll try with 5.1.

In the meantime we rebuilded all fs's with larger RGs (-r 2048), which
already improved the "df" behavior seriously.

Also, fs performance is not that bad w.r.t. bandwidth (our measurements 
were first incorrect due to 32-bit counter troubles), but operations like
rsync (which we do a lot) that scan large directory trees are horrable.
For that we'll wait for 5.1.
