Thanks for the tip; I'll try checking out older versions of e2fsprogs
from the Bitkeeper repository and see if I can replicate the problem.
Would you happen to remember what version number of mke2fs you were
using at the time?  And do you remember whether the journal created
using the old dd + magic mount option (so the kernel created the
journal), or via the first generation of e2fsprogs tools which created
an ext2/3 filesystem with a journal?  

Any additional information would be very helpful.  Thanks!!
