Can you clear up with the linux ext2fs folks what the correct behavior of
linux e2fsck should be? Properly fsck should repair a state like this, but
I'm afraid that doing so might corrupt the fs, and we're not the authorities
on the behavior of ext2fs.

One possibility suggested was that the volume might have gotten resized,
which would move the alternate superblocks. Another possibility is that
Ubuntu did something ext4-related that our ext2 tools don't understand.

However, you don't want to be in a situation with no alternate superblocks,
so do clear it up with the linux guys.
