    I was just going to comment on this as well. I cannot get this to work as
    advertised on a homegrown system as well.

    Even tune2fs -l | grep inode and ls -i .journal show it's still using the
    same inode.

    Actually, a quick look through the code, I can't see where e2fsck would
    take measures to hide .journal. At least not in 1.25.
