Well, there's a bug being currently fixed which involves a journal overflow but
it seems pretty rare as it seems i was the only one who reported it.

Nevertheless, Chris Mason & the Reiserfs team a have produced patches that will fix
that shorly.

 Patches will be made available shortly so you'll be able to use 
 a 2.4.20 kernel + data-logging support + quota support + journal overflow fix.
