Well, this is not the kind of disk corruption I'm thinking of. The
corruption happened because the file system wasn't updated to disk
because of the failing ATA communication.

I'm looking for "spontaneous" corruptions that people claim to have
experienced. Like "I installed a daily build, and now I get lots of
scandisk errors", or "Entry x in sector y is not free".
