Please supply the full oops trace.  It really makes debugging so much
easier.

Was this the only ext3 filesystem in your box?  If so, it sounds as if
you had not successfully unmounted it, because the error was coming
from inside ext3 and you'd never be able to hit that code if ext3 was
not mounted.  Running mkfs on a live filesystem would be likely to
give you exactly this sort of assertion failure.
