Ah, I see what is happening.  When we added some consistency checks to
prevent insane filesystems from causing e2fsprogs to core dump, we
accidentally broke the ability of e2fsprogs manipulate journal device
files.  Oops.  This is a regression in e2fsprogs 1.41.4, that we'll
fix in e2fsprogs 1.41.5.  I've included the patch below.

    libext2fs: external journal devices should not cause ext2fs_open2 to fail
    
    This fixes a regression introduced in commit 79a9ab14 which caused
    attempts to open external journals to fail due to overly strict
    filesystem consistency checks.
