ext3 and e2fsck/mke2fs/tune2fs

Could anyone explain what the error message, "Filesize limit exceeded",
by e2fsck means?  This partition is an ext3 file system.

After I got this error message, I tried to re-mke2fs this partition
and then "mke2fs -v /dev/sdb3" terminated with the same error message.

(Also I have gotten the same error message when I executed "tune2fs -j /dev/sdb3".

pc0#  /sbin/e2fsck.static /dev/sdb3
