      Oh and I found my answer:
      http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/ticket/943

      Actually the Pre's Internal memory is VFAT... Therefor prealloc of memory is essential for the filesystem... nothing I can do there
      expect maybe use the work-around suggested (complicated!), or maybee lower app priority... If you think of something don't hesitate to reply!

So instead of repairing, I thought that I could use the device as a small, free and fanless linux box and it is for the most part working out real well! And best of all, I can take it anywhere where there is wifi, start it and use it for all kinds of useful stuff :).
