you should fsck it very often, so you know sooner whether its silently
destroying your data or not (see debian-user).  but as said,
reiserfsck is totally broken so you don't notice the data corruption
until things start failing obscurly or you find the contents of
/bin/ls inside xfreedriver.c  (again see debian-user).

or use a journalling filesystem that has a fsck that works.
