There is a _very_ old bug that used to cause this, but it has been fixed
for a long time.  What version of ext3 are you using?

Shouldn't be a problem at all (anymore).  I've done this many times.  At
the very early days of ext3, there was a bug that the ext3 RECOVERY flag
was not cleared at clean shutdown, but it was fixed for a year or more.
