2.2's VM is even more unaware of the impact of journaling filesystem's
than 2.4's is.  For ext3-0.0.7b I'm back-porting some of Andrew's
try_to_free_buffer code to help relieve VM pressure when ext3 gets
really busy, but I'd really recommend that you try the 2.4 code for
now as it is much better at coping with high loads with relatively low
memory.

Cheers,
 Stephen
