It should work fine with e2fsck/fsck.ext2/fsck.ext3 (all the same
program).

This means that either you did not add a journal to the root fs
(check dumpe2fs -h <dev> to look for the "has_journal" feature), or
you created the journal with 2.4.10/2.4.11-pre and you need to
"chattr -i <path>/.journal; rm <path>/.journal; tune2fs -j <dev>"
to recreate the journal on this device again.
