is underlying block device a single hard disk, or maybe a RAID1 or similar ?

I had a similar problem once, which turned out to be RAID1 which was out of
sync (but wrongly thining it is OK!), so sometimes it read "right" data from
one disk, and some times "bad" data from other disk. Solution was to break
the RAID, force fsck it, and recreate the raid afterwards.

you did specify -f to force it, I assume ?

Opinions above are GNU-copylefted.
