What...!?

You... you are doing that as root, aren't you?


I think the installation DVD is beginning to look more and more
useful :)

Yes... except that we'll never know what's hapening.

(scratch, scratch....)

Check permissions. Try "mount" to see if something is mounted readonly. Try "df -h" to see if some device is full. Try stopping apparmour in case it is gone wild.

What else...? ACLs?

Your filesystem is reiserfs, perhaps? If it is, try booting the manual rescue mode of the install DVD, that gives you a text console, and run fsck on the filesystm.
