Yeah, this kind of thing happen to everyone one day or another. I did a [CTRL]+C maybe 2 seconds after, and shut the power down immediatly. Seems I lost very few thing (one file so far). My /home is on ext3, an other partition I was working on is on ext2 and did crash cleanly. One file lost so far, too.

I can be thankful to the I/O buffering of the Linux kernel 2.6 ; it’s seems to have retained most of the transactions on RAM and didn’t write much on disk before I shut the power down.

Maybe it’s time to do a new ${HOME} backup :-)
