Okay, here goes (again):

Indeed, I didn't see a hiccup either for a few months until it decided
to lose all data on one partition from one second to the other.
Fortunately, none of that data was really important. I considered it a
warning to switch my work machine to something else.

AFAIK people have reported similar failures on i386 on l-k or elsewhere.
Hence my conclusion that it's probably not a PPC specific problem.
