ouch - and even just once is "too frequently" :)

Jan 26 12:57:36 mailbox kernel: EXT3-fs error (device sdb1): ext3_free_blocks_sb: bit already cleared for block 53771686

I haven't seen any similar bug reports, and given that the RHEL5.2 kernel has been out for a long time would steer me toward thinking this is a hardware error (bad RAM or cable, though only with PATA or SCSI drives). You could check for this by converting the block numbers to hex, and looking for consistent bits being cleared.

It would probably be best to open a support ticket with Red Hat for this one,
since it's a Red Hat kernel.

If you have any way to reproduce it that'd be very useful information -
perhaps even a test using an e2image of the filesystem in question.
