I WAS using the ext3 filesystem.  After posting this I started looking for
sync problems with ext3 and ext2 filesystems even though I wasn't using
ext2.  One topic came up and the guy had the same exact problem.  Anyway the
result of the post was that ext3 is not a shared filesystem and he had to
use one of a specific list of shared filesystems in order for it to work. 
It makes sense that it will not work with ext3.

A list of shared filesystems and block devices were listed:

Shared Block Devices:
   SAN
   Dual attached SCSI
   GNBD
   DRBD
   iSCSI

Shared Filesystem:
   gfs
   gfs2
   gpfs
   ocfs
   ocfs2

I choose to go with the ocfs2 filesystem and found a complete guide to
setting it up with my current configuration of DRBD without having to
invalidate all my data on the second machine and resync.  Here is a link to
the guide http://www.drbd.org/users-guide/ch-ocfs2.html

Just for the record my problem is solved, thank you guys.  For anyone else
that comes across this I hope the information above suffices for a
resolution for your problem.
