I've seen this sort of thing happen as well on my news server.
e2fsck 1.01, 30-Oct-95 for EXT2 FS 0.5a, 95/03/19
I've always just assumed it was read corruption which didn't get written
back to the disk. Usually, though, when I have kernel messages about fs
problems, I really do have them :(

e2fsck usually knows better than I do about how to go about fixing especially on the news spool disks, I use -fy when I have to
manually e2fsck them.
