For your information; I just got this again with a different
filesystem (see below).

This time it *is* reproducible, so if you want me to try something let
me know fast since I have to delete the fs as soon as I have copied
all the data to a new one.

If I unmount and then remount the filesystem the log gets replayed OK,
I can then unmount it and run xfs_repair on it and it finds no
problems, *but* when I then mount it again and the webserver that uses
the filesystem access it via NFS it explodes again - every single
time, it's quite reproducible.
I'm currently in the process of copying all the data to a new XFS
filesystem in the hope that the new filesystem will be OK - the copy
seems to be proceeding fine.
Unfortunately I can't keep the current filesystem around for
diagnostics work since it's a production server and I don't have space
available to let the old and new copy co-exist, so I have to delete
the current one as soon as I have copied all the data off.
