Hi all,

This happened on 2.6.20-rc6-mm3, so I upgraded to 2.6.20-git14, and
same thing happened. Doing a forced fsck on the (corrupted by
double-mounting I think) filesystem fixed it, but I took a copy before
doing that.

Do we care about ext3 barfing on corrupted filesystems?

I thought Eric fixed that. Maybe he broke it instead ;)

Eeek... I'll reserve judgment on who broke what until I see that corrupted image... ;) is it available? How huge?
