Not really sured why/what happened. First of all I'm running Sid, with
everything being Reiserfs except for boot (and some ext2 for progeny). I
was happily running kernel 2.4.1, with the latest reiserfsprogs from
unstable (this was just updated recently IIRC). I did a make-kpkg as usual,
but on first boot it all went to shi*. I asked about it under the thread

Reiser has worked flawlessly for me with several distros for quite some
time. I seem to have run into the one drawback. It's tools for repairing
damage are not as proven as those of ext2.
