This would _probably_ be the cause of the error you got above (EIO).
Sounds like your disk is dying.

Sorry, I think with dumpe2fs 1.19 and later it has a much more compact
output format.  In any case, I think it is either a bad disk, or the
filesystem is corrupt, or both.  I think the patch I sent fixes the bug
that was causing the first problem, and the rest of it is the disk.  If
you don't need the data on that disk, I would try running "badblocks -w"
on the device (please see man page first!) to see if it is really dying.

Cheers, Andreas
