Have you built ext3 as a module, perhaps?  Or have you not converted
the root fs to ext3?

Because it was mounted as ext2, I imagine.

Try "cat /proc/mounts" for the definitive information about whether /
is ext2 or ext3.  /etc/mtab only gets set up _after_ the kernel has
mounted the root filesystem, so the user-space code setting it up
might get it wrong --- the kernel info in /proc is always
authoritative.
