Log of 5 oopses, two untainted

When accessing read-only HFS+ drives, occasionally programs stop responding, or X11 disappears. Attachment appears in the log.

Linux Mint 11, both default 2.6.38-8-generic and personally updated 3.0.0-0300-generic kernels.

If this isn't a HFS bug, please redirect it; I've never submitted a kernel bug. Of the five examples, I'm including three extra "tainted" examples with two "untainted" ones, in case more instances helps. There may be filesystem corruption in the HFS+ drives, but Apple's DiskUtility.app doesn't see it, nor DiskWarrior.app. System seems otherwise stable, no memtest86+ errors.

The same problem may be described here-

Please test with newer kernel to see if this fixed. 
Thanks Nick
