	The version of ocfs2console is not the same as the version of
the ocfs2 driver.  Is this on EL?  What does 'rpm -qa | grep ocfs2' say?
Or if it is mainline, what version of the mainline kernel?

	It most certainly will not hang ocfs2, but maildir might cause
some speed concerns.  Indexed directories are only just landing in
mainline ocfs2 - they are not in the production version.  So any
directory with more than 1000 entries will be a little slow (just like
ext3 without hcache).
	It'll work - people are using it just fine.  But large mail dirs
will be a little slow, so you should watch out for that.
