Nope, but it occasionally happens for no apparent reason. Some late 2.3 or
early 2.4 version was particularly broken (copying large files to HFS ot
creating directories there was a good way to corrupt the filesystem, and
mounting a HFS CD the kernel would panic reliably). That's my experience,
YMMV, use at your own risk.

Ethan is painting the picture in stark contrast here. What's new? :-)
