Can you supply your kernel configuration and dmesg? Are you using XFS?

Nope, the laptop uses nfs-root. The problem is occurring less than a few month's ago. I don't keep a log, but once every two weeks could be close to correct.
I have not seen the bug during the whole 3.0.0 development cycle, so I guess its gone.
Ok, thx for the heads-up. I'm closing this as unreproducible.
