Well, it looks quite unplesant then.
That error message can only get printed if the JFS_ABORT flag is set
for the ext3 journal, and whenever JFS_ABORT is set, the message:
Aborting journal on device ...
comes first. If you don't have that message, then the impossible has
happened.

The impossible is usually caused either by bad memory (and a
single-bit-error in memory could have caused this probem), or by some
stray pointer corrupting something.

So, I would suggest memtest86 if that is convenient, followed by
reporting the problem to the ext3 developers (see the MAINAINERS
file).

This problem is unlikely to be related to the machine being an NFS
server, though until we know the cause, nothing should be ruled out.
