Yes!

Yes.  :-)  It's a bug that has been there forever, but for some reason
the timing has changed in the current ext3 (probably due to a locking
change made for other reasons), and the bug is showing up much more
than on older kernels.

It's fixed in the 2.4.18-4 errata announced last week.

Cheers,
 Stephen
