That's great news - do you maintain some sort of bug-list somewhere? 
I'd be willing to help track things down.  While I have a fairly
vanilla system at the moment (ide+reiser), I have a spare box I've
been meaning to throw some overly complex raid+lvm+encrypted root
setup on.  I'd be willing to test some of the more obscure filesystems
too, if you need help there.

Thanks for all your work,
