I'll try it, but a question did occur to me. I got the hang while booting
a freshly-compiled 2.5.59, but the error message was received after
supposedly cleaning and recovering the journal. That was using the stock
RedHat 8.0 kernel, 2.4.18-24.8.0, which most certainly does have ext3
support. Would the bug you described affect a following boot into a
totally different kernel?
