Steps to Reproduce:

reduces linux to rubble - scrambles entire disk system
That would be a KDE problem, not a bzip2 problem.
I can't reproduce this.
What do you mean by "scrambles entire disk system"?
If it's filesystem corruption, chances are your kernel is doing something odd.
Basically, I had to re-install Red Hat. System would not re-boot. Seemed to me
a file descriptor may have decided to go walkabout and went into the system
file space. I did this twice, the second time by mistake. Debugging on Linux a
big joke, so have decided to do my Unix work on Solaris anyway, so have no
problem anymore. But thanks for letting me know someone was going to look into
it, kinda unexpected.
This sounds like a kernel problem. Please give some details on your hardware
and configuration, in particular:
IDE or SCSI controller type
