Yours is the third report of this - it's definitely a bug in
ext3.  I still need to work out how you managed to get a page
attached to the inode which has not had its buffers fed through
journal_dirty_data().  There seem to be several ways in which
this can happen.

Is it possible that you ran out of disk space on the relevant
partition shortly before it died?
