One other thought I had was that you should side step the filesystem
entirely and see if basic disk I/O is working OK. Just do
20000 v
and then dG to clear out the block, and then Rsometextblahblah...<esc>
and then ZZ. Does it write out to disk? Can you 20000 v again and
see the contents? How about after a reboot? Do you encounter hangs?
