Thomas, if you still have the source tree that was used to make this
kernel, can you please let me know which version of
cmd/xfs/repair/phase2.c you have?

The symptoms sound exactly like the problem Steve's take was aiming
to fix, namely

        - repair (introduces error)
        - mount
        - umount
        - mount (2nd mount sees error)

His fix was rev 1.30 of cmd/xfs/repair/phase2.c checked into the
internal RCS tree at 11:42am PDT on Fri 9/8 ... it would not have
appeared in the CVS tree until sometime later.
