This was me. My solution:
Luckily, the only partition of mine that got corrupted was my backup
partition, so it was trivial to re-create this simply by running my
backup scripts again after formatting the partition as reiser.
I then converted all my other partitions over to reiser, luckily having
left enough unpartitioned space on my disk to create some temp
partitions for use during the conversion.
Whilst there were (I think?) some (potential?) solutions listed in that
thread, since the issue seemed very complicated, I wasn't convinced that
it would be solved with a simple update to the FC3 RPMs. I think that
even if I had stuck with ext3, I would have needed to reformat my
partitions anyway, so switching fs type was no extra work. I tested out
reiserfs, and found that resizing worked out of the box without any
workarounds, and figured that was safer than hopefully remembering to do
the required workarounds/fixes.
