I also had a very nasty experience with ext4. A server I built using ext4 suffered a power failure and the file system was completely toast after it powered back up. fsck threw hundreds of errors and I ended up rebuilding from scratch.
I have no idea if ext4 was the cause of the problem, but I've never seen that on an ext3 system. I am very nervous... possibly irrationally so, but I think I'll stick to ext3 for now.
