Wow, fsck did quite a few things, you probably checked /lost+found for 
missing data. Did you fsck again after fsck fixed things?

Unless you're hitting some crude, new, unidentified bug in ext3,
I still think the corruption is hardware related. But the logs are 
clean, you say. Hm, can you try a current (vanilla) kernel? Lots of 
stuff happened since 2.6.11 (03/2005). Not being an expert, only 
CONFIG_LBD and CONFIG_LSF comes to mind, but I assume the FC kernel has 
set these.

BOFH excuse #378:

Operators killed by year 2000 bug bite.
