you are not the only one who found this bug. immediately after booting 2.4.2 i
received dozens of these errors, resulting in _major_ filesystem corruption.
after a half hour of fsck'ing i managed to bring the machine back into a usable
state, but there are still many files and directories around the fs that have
the wrong uid/gid associated with them, as well as incorrect file type,
permissions, etc. i'm not using any unusual hardware, and haven't had any
other recent issues like this. let me know if i can provide further information,
or test patches.

thanks,
ian wehrman
