I was unaware this was such a serious issue.  Unfortunately I have no
helpful information to offer.

Did you do something like resize your filesystem before having this
problem?

No resizing at all; this drive has always had one volume on it at max size (1TB minus whatever ext3 needs for its own bookkeeping).

I used to have this drive mounted in another computer running gNewSense
(latest + updates) but I thought I'd detach it and put the drive on this
64-bit 4GB machine.

Does it matter that the other system was a 32-bit system?  Would it be
wise to attempt fsck on a 32-bit machine?

Thanks for your input.
