I mean data loses for no obvious reason, not because of crash.

I have heard of some data losses with ext4, while it was developed. It will take another year, till this file system is really stable.

1. edit a.new
2. mv a.new a
3. turn off the computer while it is running
=> file a is a 0 byte file
Actually I remember Sidux dev saying that from his experience ext4 will be fully stable and proven 3 kernels away from it's introduction as stable into the kernel...
Ext4 was introduced as stable in 2.6.28 so in 2.6.31 it should be all good ...
That being said I'm using ext4 in my jaunty box (2.6.28) and no data loss for me, though when I copy files from some pendrives it's ridiculous slow... Didn't have that problem with ext3 or raiserfs.

This nasty bug makes my Ubuntu 9.04 x64 unusable during intensive I/O load.

If you use Kanotix you can use 2.6.30 + fglrx. As a kernel patch is required it is very unlikely that other distro kernels would work.
