In the past I lose configuration files from kde, gconf based programs (gnome), pan, firefox, etc
maybe xfs expose more this problem

I'm starting to think the same thing
If needed I can replace memory dimm, this is my principal notebook and I
need it to work

root@champagne:/home/sandro# xfs_info /

blks

root fs on lvm on dm_crypt
to run xfs_repair I have to boot from a live distribution that support
this stack, I need some time

First time of this bug, not sure if it's ext4 related
Ext4 disk is my personal mirror of data taken from my server, I can
reformat ext4 disk to xfs
Ironically I started test ext4 to replace xfs on this machine :-(
