We had some problems with secure delete on ext3 before, but no backup/SMP 
related ones.

Again my question: Why do you have to access files directly? Would it be 
possible to use a list registration for your data? The list file accesses are 
known to be stable.

Could you please retry with ext2, so we can get closer to the problem? Also, 
a System.map is required to find the Oopsing function from the Oops report.
