It's more than likely the fs. xfs is a journalling file system and 
you'll need to edit your /etc/fstab to mount tmp/jack as tmpfs. When I 
was using ext3fs I found that the line:
    none  /dev/shm  tmpfs  defaults 0 0
gave the best results. Here  is the link to the official documentation. 
Using ext2 makes things easier and faster. IMHO.
