0.5b is a pretty old version.  There were a number of problems that
have been fixed since then.  My experience is that 0.7a is quite
stable for 2.2 kernels.  I'm personally, using 0.9.5 on the 2.4.7
kernel, and it works quite well.  On the other hand, 2.4 still has a
number of VM issues.

By the way, you didn't run fsck.ext3 on a mounted filesystem, did you?
That's a really bad idea...
