First of all, many thanks for your effort and your detailed
reports. This may really help us to get the issue sorted.

Yes, I have another one :-/
I compiled a rockbox build from cvs status as of 01 Feb 2004;
this is the time when the problem occurred. Please download
and do the same stress test that you did with ajbrec-fast.ajz
with that. Then check the disk for errors. Hopefully there are
some (proving the "disk brand theory").
Back in February there were 3 users reporting file system
corruption, all with a Hitachi DK23-CA disk (Pedro Clemente,
Trent Johnson and Lee Marlow). Unfortunately I only have a full
report of my first test from Trent Johnson, the others didn't
supply full debug info.
On the downside I also have a report by one user with the same
disk who uses the optimization all the time and does not have
any problems with it (Henrik Backe).
