I'm the only one getting hard drive errors, right?

I was just playing with weston master under X, and timon37's radeon ddx,
weston crashed, when I tried to delete the wayland lock I got an error
that the filesystem was readonly, dmesg said:

[  496.347230] EXT4-fs error (device sda1): ext4_ext_search_left:1275: inode #21374007: comm flush-8:0:ix (10742) != EXT_FIRST_INDEX (0) (depth 1)!
[  496.347236] Aborting journal on device sda1-8.
[  496.347383] EXT4-fs (sda1): Remounting filesystem read-only

Which is pretty scary.  

I feel like this *might* have happened before when I was playing with
weston, but I definitely don't have enough information to suggest there is
any real correlation.  Or knowledge of what exactly is going on here to
know if a correlation is even possible.

I had xserver set suid root, out of habit from before I fixed the bug
complaining about not getting master, which seems like it might have made
something like this possible.  

I do have good backups.
