:      Probably about a week or 10 days, I meant sometimes it would say
:  syncing disks...9  sometimes syncing disks...22

    Ok. DR reports that one of his machines had a similar problem so I
    don't think the disk device is the cause.

    We had committed a lot of bug fixes in that time frame, though nothing
    related to this bug in particular, so definitely upgrade to the latest
    HEAD and lets see if it reoccurs.  If the filesystem was ok after reboot
    then it sounds like some sort of memory corruption rather then filesystem

    Has the problem occured on multiple occassions or just once ?
