I once stumbled onto something like this changing an XFS filesystem to a
EXT3 filesystem. Most filesystems leave empty space in the partition
superblock (which can be used by a bootloader, for example) but XFS does
not.. presumably, XFS left filesystem meta-data in the 'dead' space not
used by ext.. I had to zero out that partition to prevent any left over
xfs meta-data from interfering. There might be other strange
combinations that might have this effect as well.
