[PlanetCCRMA] fc4 journaling

i have two partitions on my laptop, the solid fc3 planet ccrma that  
i've been using for a while and one that's a tester, been keeping up  
with fc4 lately.
a couple things are preventing me from using the fc4 as default. the  
main one is that there seems to be some sort of mega-journaling going  
on, where the disk clunks a write every few seconds. i mean, perhaps  
its journaling, but honestly, it's loud enough to hear it. that  
combined with the fact that it seems to result in a periodic set of  
xruns in jack (when running) kind of dissuades me from using it. what  
is going on differently in the small-period system or disk tasks?

second (slightly annoying thing) is the simple fact that a log out of  
gnome give me no option to restart or shut down, so i always have to  
go that extra step back to terminal (i boot init 3) and sudo poweroff.
