You have to check that the files handling the data are written on disk. 
You may have pb with your file system writes. Otherwise, there is a 
cache, yes, but you can tell the server to sync on write (there is a 
flag in the partition configuration : <property name="synchOnWrite" 
value="true" />).

It may also be a bug in ADS 1.0.2...
