I was thinking about the reported mini-hangs that folks are seeing with 
jfs, except the all important keyword "jfs" didnt make it out of my head 
and into the 2nd bit of the message  :-( Sorry for the confusion.

So I meant "faster that ext3, and without strange mini hangs like jfs...".

Never suffered this personally, it was an unexpected filesystem 
corruption with ext3 that "encouraged" me to try out xfs instead.
