I'm afraid that the latest version released suffers from this bug. I've
stumbled into it while doing some testing with Caroline:


I believe it to be systematic and very easy to reproduce: just write
something large to the overlay. For example, you could download a SoaS
image from Browse into the journal.

This is the by-design behavior of device mapper snapshots which we're
using to implement writing to the USB sticks. The easiest way to avoid
it is switching to scrap everything and switch to a traditional
filesystem layout.
