    Well the first thing I checked was vanilla 2.4.5, and I managed to
    bring that down hard too. It has nothing at all to do with reiserfs,
    but may be related to USB instead. I have been able to reproduce the
    problem by doing the following:

    a) Booting with X on vc/2
    b) Logging into vc/6 instead
    c) Mounting a filesystem on my USB Zip drive
    d) Unmounting the filesystem again
    e) Unmounting the NFS mount
    f) Executing "rmmod -a" twice to clean out the now-unused modules
    (e.g. sd_mod, scsi_mod, usb-storage)
    g) Trying to switch back to vc/2
    h) Oops!

    2.4.4 seems OK; I guess I'll have to build those -pre kernels now.
