Sure, kernel noticed errors, and remounted the filesystem R/O (I didn't
write anything down. really sorry)

I had rebooted the system.
Then startup scripts had booted the system to root shell

I had run fsck on the filesystem. It had plenty of files with shared
blocks, many orphaned inodes, errors in free bitmaps.

Then, after the fsck, I got many missing files (many probably went to
lost+found), some had garbage, some became truncated (0 size)

Mostly were affected files that were from recent dpkg update.

I use ubuntu 9.10, and (almost) latest -git of kernel tree.

Best regards,
Maxim Levitsky
