I have been following Unstable, so I suppose I have used earlier 2.6.17
kernels as well. When I ran xfs_repair on this and one other filesystem,
some errors were found, so as you implied, the problem propably was a
filesystem that hade been previously corrupted. I will keep running
2.6.17-6 and report back again if I run in to more problems.
Feel free to close this bug as user error or something.

before / is remounted read-write so I can check that filesystem as
Thanks for your help
