I see from your bug report that this is a reiserfs filesystem.  I've been
told that reiserfs is not considered stable on alpha; it has actually been

concerns.  This may or may not be related, but I figured it was worth
pointing out.

Hmm.  I've been running it for a year or two, 24/7, with no real
problems.  I've heard that JFS is not workable on Alpha.  What modern
FSs actually work?

Well I did a sarge install around august IIRC and I used XFS for everything except for /boot and it's been running fine. I haven't done any real stress testing but it seems to be ok.
