Yes, it does look like ReiserFS may at times be losing data

A little while ago we had an experience that made me suspect that ReiserFS may be "forgetful" - in other words, that files under it might at times go missing. Based on a few peoples' experiences that I have recently read about it appears that my suspicions may have been not entirely without merit.

So the practical advice to be derived from this appears to be the following: unless there is a compelling reason to use ReiserFS use ext3 instead.
