This is a known error, and I thought a fix was submitted by Andrew
and/or Stephen.  It should not cause a filesystem error just because
the filesystem was full.

Hmm, running e2fsck is needed to fix an aborted journal - the in-kernel
journal recovery code isn't smart enough to do this.  You _do_ run
e2fsck on your filesystems at boot, right?  Just because you are using
ext3 is no reason to turn off e2fsck.  e2fsck is smart enough that if
you are running ext3 it will only do journal recovery and not do a full
filesystem check unless there is a filesystem error (like you have
here), or if the "time since last checked" has elapsed.  If you don't
like the latter behaviour, see tune2fs man page on how to change this
(via -c and -I options).

Cheers, Andreas
