    Subject2.4.35 SMP: ext3_readdir: bad entry in directory #323888: rec_len is smaller than minimal
    Hello, 

    I got a bunch of these into dmesg:

    EXT3-fs error (device sd(8,2)): ext3_readdir: bad entry in directory #323880: rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec_len=0, name_len=0
    EXT3-fs error (device sd(8,2)): ext3_readdir: bad entry in directory #323888: rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec_len=0, name_len=0
    EXT3-fs error (device sd(8,2)): ext3_readdir: bad entry in directory #323882: rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec_len=0, name_len=0

    The kernel is 2.4.35 SMP, dual-processor. The scsi driver is Fusion MPT SCSI
    Host driver 2.05.16.

    The device is /dev/sda2, root fs.

    One line per each directory had dropped into dmesg each night (I think
    during updatedb) before I noticed.

    The directories in question have not been written to for ages:

    >debugfs /dev/sda2
    debugfs: ncheck 323888
    Inode Pathname
    323888 /usr/share/doc/logcheck-1.1.1
    debugfs: ncheck 323882
    Inode Pathname
    323882 /usr/share/doc/dev86-0.15.5
    debugfs: ncheck 323880
    Inode Pathname
    323880 /usr/share/doc/mod_put-1.3


    The hardware _should_ be solid, although I can never 100% sure rule out disk
    level corruption.

    Does this ring any bells to anyone, short of block level corruption?
