= true, right?  Why do you think you see larger intervals between write activity with the
optimization from COUCHDB-767?  Have you measured the time it takes to open the extra FD?
 In my tests that was a sub-millisecond operation, but maybe you've uncovered something else.

Oh, now I understand - you're saying that some of the iostat reports come back empty.  That's
really bizarre.
