...and after this message, fsck.ext3 just stops? What's the exit code of 
fsck.ext3? (e.g. 'fsck.ext3 /dev/sda6; echo $?'). Try "fsck.ext3 -v" for 
more details. Is there anything related in your syslog? Can you dd(1) 
the device (read! not write! :)) without errors?

Which kernel/arch are you running?

BOFH excuse #99:

SIMM crosstalk.
