Did you expect it to? I just ran this on a reiserfs filesystem, and
it produced garbage as well. The filesystem is perfectly fine!

Fair enough. I doubt anyone will be using reiserfs v4 on production

This whole argument is pretty silly. Some people have had good
experiences with reiserfs, some have had bad. Find me a filesystem

horror story for some poor soul.
