Short summary: DO NOT USE REISERFS.

Long explanation can be found in the openafs-info archives if you
search around a bit. We have found xfs to be a good file system for
/vicepX partitions (with namei fileserver) and ext2 (it's only a cache
and can be rebuilt after a crash) for client caches. Ext3 works too
(server or client), but slower.

> I have to start to worry about it or is simply an openafs bug?

It's simply a reiserfs bug. If you have backup an can to move
to something else, no need to worry.
