Comment 2 Stephen Tweedie 2002-03-02 15:57:21 UTC
You've got corruption in the page->buffers ring for a page that happens to be in
use by ext3.  This is almost always a sign of bad memory, although it sometimes
indicates a device driver stomping on memory randomly.

I'd suggest running memtest86 overnight to see if that shows anything up. 
Otherwise, there's not much we can do with this report unless it's repeatable.

Ran memtest and it shoed that one of my DIMMs hat three 1 bit errors cold and more
when heated up. I've changed it for a new one which passed memtest without
glitches, will report if this ever happens again (doubt it).
