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.

Thanks! I'll give the patch a whirl and keep an eye out for 1.41.5.
