far) unique, in that most people suffering the problem see it no more
often than once or twice a week. For those people, a workaround is to
unmount and remount the filesystem when it shows the problem (rebooting
is not necessary, nor, in most cases, is fsck). If you're really seeing
it every hour, the workaround would be too painful.
I will look into the early availability of a fix.
