Seems interesting.
I forgot to mention (yes, sorry, it's important piece of information),
that I have RAID 1 (mirrored disks), so HW problem is less possible.
And I have reiserfs partition on the mirror too, without any problem.

Anyway, do you have an idea how to test for HW errors?

thanks for the answers!
