What about this? Is OCFS2 supposed to allow you to mount the device while its 
heartbeat isn't active?

And may I ask why you chose to withhold that dmesg information from us?

IIRC Phil's OCFS2 patch doesn't apply here, as it was merged into 2.6.20, and 
you're on 2.6.21, so that fix should already be included in your kernel. If 
I'm not misinformed, that is.
