ext3 partition still gets mounted as ext2

I'm using the ext3-patched version of Linux 2.4.13 (the patch from Andrew Morton's UOW site). I compiled both ext3 and ext2 into the kernel. I've also done "tune2fs -j /dev/hda3" and changed /etc/fstab to ext3. However, when I boot up, the filesystem still gets mounted as ext2. I've been trying to figure out why for many days now.. any ideas?

Here's my setup:

Debian GNU/Linux unstable

Linux kernel 2.4.13

$ mount --version mount: mount-2.11l

I'm using util-linux 2.11l

I'm using grub 0.90-11 to boot.. contents of menu.lst:
title Linux 2.4.13 with ext3 support
kernel /boot/k2413-01 root=/dev/hda3

$ cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro  0  1
/dev/hda4 none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

$ dmesg | grep ext
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.

$ cat /proc/mounts
/dev/root / ext2 rw 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0

$ ls -la /
-rw-------    1 root     root     33554432 Oct 26 18:24 .journal

If anyone can help out, I'll really appreciate it.. thanks!
