Absolutely. 2.6.12 and 2.6.12-git9 crash within
minutes/seconds; OTOH, 2.6.13-rc1 (plus Hugh's patch)
survives this torture test for hours (despite
generating 30+ MB of kernel/IDE error messages :). No
OOPS, no BUGs, no panics, just truck load of error

I haven't tested whether earlier releases of 2.6
suffer from this (such as 2.6.10, 2.6.11 ..) or other
hardware combinations exhibit the same problem etc.
Tell me, if you want me to.
