Nobody noticed previously because the bug was hidden. But some changes in 2.6.19 (dirty page balancing, causing writeback to happen earlier) revealed the bug, making it occur much more frequently. Everybody using 2.6.19 should probably downgrade to an earlier kernel or use an upcoming 22.214.171.124 with the fix.
