system freeze while e2fscking a partition



the facts:
i've got an ext3 partition that system didn't correctly unmont due to a
power failure while i was downloading a huge file.
at the reboot the other ext3 partition (the /) got checked and fixed
perfectly, but fsck was needed for the one where the file was
downloading to. 

here's the problem:

the system completely freeze during the check, approximately always at
the same point (i tried several times, even with badblocks scanning). i
even removed the incriminated file, but the problem persists...

what can i do? 

i'm running a vanilla 2.4.19 kernel, on a debian sid, with
e2fsprogs                1.27+1.28-WIP-0626-1 

thanks

Francesco
