It has to do with the write delays and the way the data is written to

The fixes for these issues have long since been in rawhide.
And in F10 also?

Will be when 2.6.29 hits F10.

F10 still had ext4 as a "hidden" fs option, remember, it was a bit more
of a test fs at that point.  We do make efforts to keep things working
well in F10 (Thanks esp. to Chuck!) but F10 ext4 wasn't expected to be
without some potential flaws.

When I installed my F10, it was an option to use EXT4 so I used it.

I have had strange crashes but I think they are a combination of hardware and timing issues, not Fedora directly. I cannot say what data has been lost, if any due to using EXT4.
