There are two ways that can happen.  One was fixed in 2.4.18-4smp, the
other was fixed fairly recently.

I hope so --- it's impossible to be 100% sure that what you
encountered was exactly the same as what we fixed, but there's a good
chance it is.

No, 2.4.19 froze before all of those fixes were complete.  2.4.19-ac
has more of the ext3 updates, and I've got just final testing to do
before flushing the rest to Marcelo for 2.4.20.  The latest is in
ext3's cvs (ext3-1_0-branch), which I updated to 2.4.20-pre3
yesterday.
