#90 system partially hangs when copying many files

Matt Wu
Ext2fsd (105)

ext2fsd 0.48 hangs when copying many files on ext2 partition, created with mke2fs (from older alpha-release).
I had strange configuration, where total aux information (inodes, bitmaps and others) took more than 512 Mb on 4 Gb partition, but that configuration worked nice. Then after recreating ext2 fs with 'mke2fs n:' i've got filesystems that causes ext2fsd 0.48 partially hang my pc. I can't ever terminate hanged process.
Bug seems not related to any file size, content or its directory, but to amount of files copied.

    1 What parameters you specified with mke2fs when making ext2 volume ?
    2 Around how many files and how big is the average file size ?
