OK, following the reiserfs/compiler thread, I can see now that my bug report
may have been ignored since I was using a non-kosher compiler (although I
have used it since late October -99 without any problems). Or, it might not
have been ignored, just nobody told me he/she wasted some time on it. Since
it seems to be hardware related; that oops wasn't the only one, and after
some more strange behaviour, I moved the hard drive to another, almost
identical, PC, with even less memory, 16 MB (but this one I have the chips
to run 48 MB, but I wanted to stress it). And it's been running for a week
now, like a clock.

So, sorry for the false alarm!

Cheers,
Peter
