I'll need to check on this.

Unfortunately it was not a trivial process to install Debian "squeeze" onto an EC2 instance; it took a couple ugly Perl scripts, a patched Debian-Installer, and several manual post-install-but-before-reboot steps (like fixing up GRUB 0.99).  One of these days I may get time to update all that to the official "wheezy" release and submit bug reports.

I have an exact image of the failing instance, but it has proprietary data on it and if I stand up an old copy I need to be careful not to actually let it send all the queued emails :-D.

It's probably easier for me to halt email delivery and clone the working instance and try to reproduce from there.  If I recall, the (easily undone) workaround was to remount from "data=journal" to "data=ordered" on a couple filesystems.  It may take a day or two to get this done, though.

If it comes down to it I also have a base image (from "squeeze" as of 9 months ago) that could be made public after updating with new SSH keys.

Thanks again!
