I have no idea what I did (or didn't do) that fixed the problem. I
rebooted, picked the recovery kernel choice, shutdown, and the next time
I came up in the regular boot mode I was fine. Well, if someone has a
few moments to spare, please point me to the place where it describes
step-by-step how to rebuild the tree for a corrupt reiserfs partition.
