Bad for the module but good for my system ;-) I would suggest to remove 
the i686 module from the devs-testing site until the problem is solved. We
have lost files, which we could restore somehow. But it shouldn't happen to 
other people as well.

I think that the errors in xfs_logprint are just a matter of time and transferred files. 
I'm synching a directory tree (using rsync) of about 2000 files with different size 
and I'm checking it with a "find ./ -type f -exec md5sum {} \; | sort" against the 
original tree.

Good hunting!
