There seems to be something else too, yes.

Well, accidently I formatted the partition. I needed my /var partition
urgently and I tried the following: I tarred the whole /var from a
rescue system (gentoo amd64 live cd version 2007.0, IIRC there is 2.6.19
on it) and did a "rm -fr /var/*" and tried to tar it back.

While this worked for my /home (I also had the error there), tarring
back the files onto /var produced several oopses in dmesg and the
userspace complained about an error in a (directory?) structure not
being accessible/not able to be initialized. Well, I took screenshots of
this but accidently I lost them on my cam and due to running a rescue
system there is no reminisence in a file of this. 

I formatted the partition then :-(

I could only try to reproduce it on my home partition... Does anybody
have a clue how this can be done or a suspicion how to trigger this
error?

King Regards, Konsti
