Ahem. I had the same problem until somebody suggested that it might be
due to the html formatting via gmail
Turn it off and you'll prolly see the problem disappear.

Regarding ext4 , yeah am excited too. Their wiki has some benchmarks.
More importantly ext4 will only show some difference when you have
extents enabled.

I am also eagerly looking forward to btrfs which promises truly better
performance + features and is under development via oracle dev and
some really brainy chaps in the FS world and corporates. Infact ext4
is being viewed as an interim step
A good source on the history would be this page -

Keep posting your experiences !
