Re: ReiserFS corruption with kernel 2.5.59

It think it would be quite difficoult to find which sequence of events caused
this corruption.
The first message appeared saturday, while the desktop was just running X,
KDE 3.1 as desktop, (no users conencted or using it), and
the just running application was kslideshow.kss, to lock the desktop, showing
some nice good gif.
But /ust /opt and home of the user running this KDE was not the root partition
that has been corrupted.

also /var is in a different partition.

The only I/O that could be done on / partition was reading the so libraries in
/lib, and some configuration file in /etc.
Then every night updatedb has been runned, reading all partition.

The latest 2.5 kernel I tested on this desktop before 2.5.59 was 2.5.55, and
I am sure the filesystem was not corrupted with 2.5.55, (then I used 2.4.20 for
a while, and no corruption also in this case).
