I had a problem running *adjacent* ext3 and reiserfs partitions on the same
physical disk. When I distributed the filesystems to partitions on different
hard drives, my file corruption problems went away. Eventually, I determined
that it was a limitation in the driver for the IDE controller chip used on
the mainboard. IOW, these problems/stories are sometimes tied to specific
hardware but the filesystems are 'blamed.'
