    I get these somewhat frequently on one of my systems as well. Usually,
    it's bogus...i.e. umount and e2fsck, and nothing is found.

    EXT2-fs warning (device 08:16): ext2_free_blocks: bit already cleared for
    block 404354

    kernel=2.0.30, device = IBM DORS 2gb SCSI disk on an NCR 810 using the BSD
    ported ncr8xx driver. I'm considering trying to swap the NCR out for a
    Buslogic to see what happens.
