Hi everybody,

    I tried to reduce the IO of bitcoind, and I found '-flushwallet=false'.
After trying it, my IO reduced greatly.
    But why 'flushwallet' is true by default? Is there any danger if
closing the flush wallet thread?
    I lost all my coins in testnet after one crash with
'-flushwallet=false', was this because of no flush wallet thread?
