Yeah, I get that stuff when I use my cheap (unpowered) usb hdd.  When
those messages get going I'll often lose the mount and
unplugging/replugging the drive doesn't help.  A reboot is usually
needed.  It almost feels like things would be okay if I could increase
the power to the drive, or something.
