One of the things to like about SD Card and other card / stick memory is
it hides many of the details of raw NAND from us, like bad blocks, error
correcting codes and in this case wear levelling.
I have run my mailserver on a 1G USB stick (hooked up to an ARM board I
designed for another customer) for 2 years 24 / 7 now formatted ext3,
that gets pretty hammered, no trouble. So I can't guarantee your
particular card isn't broken for wear levelling, but cheap random USB
stick doesn't care in the least about ext3 and I didn't see any trouble
from SD with ext3 either.
