Since when roughly? 2.6.20ish? Before?

Side note: you don't need mtdblock:
# cp jffs2-empty.img /tmp/foo
# losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/foo
# modprobe block2mtd block2mtd=/dev/loop0,128ki
# mount -t jffs2 mtd0 /n/lower/b0

It doesn't really hurt, 'tis just superfluous.

Could be my problem. I'll see if I can reproduce it. Can you send me
your .config or a link to it?
