No, not at all. This machine was running for 10 months with 2.4.xx
kernels without any problems. Since this oops, I tried to reproduce
the particular situation (rsync over nfs, and some additional load),
put I had no success in crashing the box:
I mirrored the box (ca. 1 million files) 5 times, no problem.

Just my first impression, a closer look showed that most of the
cases group around 2.4.1[789] because of lacking reiserfs_find_actor.
Sorry for the overstatement.

A recent oops report shows some similarity, using a 2.6.7 kernel:

Hardware issue: you mean memory? Last winter I ran memtest86
during a weekend, everything was fine. At the moment I can't
take this box offline for a longer period to test again, so I
tend to belive memory is ok, and knock on wood...
