I've seen it, and seen it regularly (I've got a couple machines that have 
been finicky lately, one due to a driver and the other to some major 
brain damage on my part).  I've yet to find the patience to do anything 
other than rm -rf lost+found/*, though.  I like backups.

I don't know the answer to this question, but I imagine UTSL'ing would be 
a good place to start.
