I've already file a report on suse forums.

I think there is two bugs here, the first is what ever brought the system down
but unless this happens many times again I do not think there is enough
information available to diagnose this.

You're right. Unless it happens again and you can provide more information, I
doubt we could do anything about it. You can at least try memcheck and check
out SMART data.

The second is fsck rewinding time by 64 days. Obviously this may only occur
for
the exceptional circumstances of the first bug but it is not good behaviour.

I really doubt that fsck did this 'undoing' of last 64 days.

(In reply to comment #4)
The date the data has reverted to (4/7/11 / 64 days ago) is beginning to look
suspiciously like the date I installed suse 11.3 on this disk. In particular
it looks like the last log entry is the last shutdown after I finished the
install and copied my home across from the the old disk.

Blind guess: do you have multiple HDDs (or partitions)? Perhaps wrong (on the
old disk) partition is mounted?
