I have experienced data corruption on 2 different systems using ext4 on
flash media.  One of the drives was an Intel SSD drive and the other was
a SanDisk Cruzer USB flash drive.  I reproduced the problem several
times with the both of these drives on two different hardware systems.
Here's how I reproduced the problem:

1.  Install Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit on USB flash drive...
   - /boot ext2 500MB (primary)
   - swap 500MB (primary)
   - / ext4 rest-of-drive (primary)

2.  Install latest updates with Update Manager.

3.  Reboot and observe corruption.

I have repeated a similar experiment on Fedora 12 with no file-system
corruption.
