Looks like recent flash memory quality, expecialy budget one, is became
worse and worse. I have a small system (lart) running on 1Gb CF with debian,
and the CF is 4 years old and still working fine. I recently replaced with a
4Gb CF, but starts to get corrupted after few month. So i decide to continue
to use the old CF.
I had similar experience with varius kind of removable flash memory (usb,
sd) and usually recent and high capacity have more wearing problems.
