Your assumption is correct.  The block number was 1633350398, which
is labeled "bh = " for some reason.

Yesterday I pushed a newer gfs_fsck and fsck.gfs2 to their appropriate
git source repositories.  So you can build that version from source if
you need it right away.  But it sounds like it wouldn't have helped
your problem anyway.  What would really be nice is if there is a way
to recreate the problem in our lab.  In theory, this error could be
caused by a hardware problem too.
