    OK, that's the second report then. I'm beginning to worry. :/

    Are you seeing any DMA timeout messages in your kernel log?

    Also, both reports are on ext3, which might point to an ext3 problem
    with long commit intervals.

    Bradley, Jan, since when have these problems been happening? Kernel
    version-wise, I mean?
