I had this problem recently with a few systems.  Try booting to
single-user mode, and then do the following command:

tune2fs -j DEVICE-FILE-WITH-PROBLEM

This will create a new journal on the filesystem.  I haven't tracked
down why the journal disappears yet, but it seems to, and then the
system (of course) won't mount it as ext3.
