I just have my machine crash with no warning overnight.... I woke
up to find that my monitor was dead in the water. I could not see
anything. so I had to cross my fingers and hit the reset button

when 2.0.17 came back up it died in the fsck section with the cryptic
error message that went something like

Kernel panic: Buffer in candidate list with BADNESS

seems like it is coming from fs/buffer.c

if (BADNESS(bh)) panic("Buffer in candidate list with BADNESS != 0\n");

I am now back on 2.0.8 as I deleted 2.0.16 already.
