Is there any chance this bug can still affect an ext4 filesystem on a partition that is just slightly under 1TB? I originally experience this bug and, to work around it, re-partitioned my 1.5 TB drive into two partitions. Since then I've not experience any issues until today when I got some corruption out of the blue. I'm wondering if it is possible that the bug still exists with smaller filesystems but only much more infrequenly.

I posted the full details of my "story" here:

Either way, looking forward to the roll-out of 0.12.5 into lucid-backports so that, if nothing else, I can (somewhat) eliminate the kvm/virtio layer as the source of my problems.
