Hi Adam,

I changed so much meanwhile to get good thread support that the ABI
isn't (and in some rare circumstances the API) compatible to 0.17 anymore.

The state of my development can be reviewed at

The file system stats are splitted into collect mount information and
collect stats for each mount in that snapshot (IIRC you found that proposal
reasonable, too).

Thanks for your reply,
