OK, I ran.

# fsck -v /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3

Nothing in /usr/local/src/lost+found

I hope not. I know at least my RAM is OK. I installed 256Mb
before booting with 2.4.4 and tested all with memtest86.

CVS couldn't remove mozilla/xpinstall/wizard/windows/nszip
after the process terminated, but
mozilla/xpinstall/wizard/windows/nszip/Entries and
mozilla/xpinstall/wizard/windows/nszip/Tag were updated after
the first EXT2-fs error messages.

Well, everything seems OK for now. Thanks.
