2.2.17+reiserfs crash

I just got two separate crashes using 2.2.17 and reiserfs.

        FIC-SD11 with K7-700, 384MB of RAM
        Dlink Quad Ethernet card (tulip)

The first one:
        find . -print | cpio -C 4096 -pumd /newplace
        i.e., copying a rather large directory tree from one disk to another
disk (note: NOT another paritition) Both disks have reiserfs partitions on

        Here is the Oops info
        Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address
        current->tss.cr3 = 14d71000, %cr3 = 14d71000
        *pde = 00000000

The second one:
        find NFS_MOUNTED_DIR -print | cpio -C 4096 -pumd /newplace2
        NFS_MOUNTED_DIR comes from a giant NETAPP box. I'm sure I'm doing
        /newplace2 is a different partition on an IDE drive with reiserfs on

I'd be happy to supply more info if needed.

I want to duplicate this problem repeatably, but since the machine is in
production as an SMB, NFS and CVS server, I don't have the courage for doing
something like this.

I have lost faith in reiserfs. So, I'll rebuild the kernel and move back to
