Kernel 3.6.2, which is only in current, has an ext4 data corruption bug.
>
      It was only recently discovered, and was not found by routine testing
on<br>
      our end. Upstream is working on a resolution, which will be pushed out to

      current as soon as they have an official fix that has made it into a
new<br>
      patch level. The bug is rare, and is reported to manifest only during two

      or more successive reboots in rapid succession. If the information is<br>
      accurate, you should be fine if you are try to avoid this. But backup

      of important data is still the best option. For full information,
