I have struggled on how to write that testcase so that we prove
the functionality works--but also in a heavily loaded environment.

If you have any ideas on how to do it, do it.  I am offering
explanations as to the *cause* of the problem--so you can come up
with a better solution than I have.  What you see is as smart as
I could get on that particular testcase.  Do we remove the test,
and make it a question mark if it really does what is advertised,
or do we make the test last up to 10 minutes (hopefully disk
activity will have died down by then), or what?

Please advise.  Oh, BTW, don't need to get hostile.
