Yes, that is correct.

Thanks for the tip... the link that you referred to was most useful. I
might now have an idea what the problem might be... Further on in the
thread <http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=reiserfs&m=108117079808733&w=2>
it says that there is something in the patch that "can lead to a
dirtied_when in the future, and missed writeback". Well, what happens
if the directory that I am missing was in that writeback that got
missed?
I will try updating the debian patch myself and give it another test
tonight and will report back on my findings. But, before I do so, does
it seem likely that this could cause the problem?

Cheers,
Paul
