Well, since the drive is absolutely new, it's been running for about 12
hours, it shouldn't be failing.

Anyway, after some hours of googling I came up with some hints on that
reiserfs with some 2.6 kernels are having real problems with some IDE drives
and their cache memory.
So, I reformatted with ext3 and the problem is gone..
