We've had similar problems with free block corruption under MkLinux
(2.0.37).  This may be a red herring, but I've only noticed the damage on
the last partition mounted.  You might try mounting a bogus partition
after the others and see if it goes away.  Just a wild thought.  Anyway,
the problem began when someone ported some changes from the current
development sources into the 2.0.xx tree, between 2.0.33 and 2.0.36 (the
former was fine, the latter has the problem.  It might be easier to find
in the context of 2.0.xx since many less things were changing....
