Yeah, that is probably it.

Don't see anything in /var/log/messages, but now that I power cycled,
I do get this popup from gnome-mount:

The  volume 'Backup1' uses the ext4 file system which is not supported
by your system.

and did get this in ~/.xsession-errors:

** (gnome-mount:3574): WARNING **: Mount failed for
org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.UnknownFilesystemType : Unknown file
system 'ext4'
