I'm pretty sure it can't possibly be reiserfs because the actual lv's were
hosed. The LVM/block layer should prevent resize_reiserfs or any part of
reiserfs from damaging the lv's. I love reiser and have used it with great
success for years. I find it sad that people still pan reiserfs after all
this time. I am really looking forward to reiser4 (released already but I
want to see it get some more time behind it) and some cool plugins for it.
I have a feeling it is going to do for Linux what MS claims WinFS will
(someday) do for their OS.

I suspect this is the case. I am using Fedora Core 2 with a 2.6.something
(exact kernel version in the typescript file from my original posting)
kernel and that seems to be the most likely culprit. However, I doubt
anyone from RedHat is going to take an interest because this isn't
reproduceable. That is to say, I am not going to trash my box again to
reproduce it.
