Just as an aside, I've watched this conversation go on and on while I
run reiserfs on several servers, workstations, and a notebook. I have
current kernels and have watched carefully for corruption. I haven't
seen any evidence of corruption on any of them including my notebook
which has a bad battery and bad power connection so it tends to
instantly die.

Alan, is there a particular trigger to this?
