Understood, what I mean to imply is that I might (at least temporarily)
be shielded from the bug because reformatting the root partition could
possibly have removed some fragmentation and improved the initial disk
layout. With the previous partition layout there would also have been a
mixture of extents and non-extents based files since that system was
upgraded from EXT2 to EXT3 to EXT4.

I'll try to boot from 2.6.29 again as well, and put it through some
suspend/resume cycles just in case that made any difference.

Regards,
Niel
