[Libtorrent-devel] Partial Allocation & XFS?

Ever since reformatting my RAID with XFS (not a small task, considering the
amount of data I had to temporarily store elsewhere), I've been encountering
hash fails at 98-99% torrent completion. Sometimes, the torrents are split
into multiple parts, and those seem to have at least a chance of finishing
properly if, after noticing that the torrent is stuck perpetually
downloading the final missing chunk (not necessarily at the end of the data
set, of course), I stop/remove the torrent, delete the offending .rar piece,
and start it again. But even that doesn't work every time. And sometimes,
single-file torrents "just work".
I noticed that Azureus has an XFS-specific partial allocation mode, and am
wondering if my use of XFS is causing the problem here. I don't have any
non-XFS partitions to test with (except NTFS ones mounted with ntfs-3g), so
I'm hoping someone else will know what I should do. Also, is there a way to
force "full allocation" with libtorrent/rtorrent? It seems like that would
solve the problem too.
