Hi, my laptop has been on ext4 since kernel 2.6.30 is out (used daily),
and my main desktop too (on a raid1, no separate /boot with "grub2")
which is mostly on 24/7. No problem here (both Squeeze amd64).
Huge improvement in tasks like kernel compil time, kernel source tree
deletion, copy of large HD video files etc... and off course fsck
running time. I was using data=writeback (now kernel default) and
relatime mount option on ext3, but kept the default options on ext4
(data=ordered), despite this the improvement is quite sensible for my use.
