Well, I run glibc-2.2.1 as well, so that might be one of the factors
contributing to this. Then again, glibc-2.2.1 with ext2 does not cause any
problems whatsoever with mozilla. So it could be that reiserfs + glibc-2.2.1 is
a bad combination, question remains which of these two is the culprit (if not
both). Since glibc-2.2.2 is out, I will give that a try as well. Not tonight

And no, I'm not running RedHat 7.x for those who might think so (and
automatically blame everything on it).

When did you switch to glibc-2.2.1? Were you running reiserfs before that?
