The rebuild-tree operation is an extensive fsck operation that is not used in 
normal situations.  OTOH not only is rebuild-tree slow but if you have a 
filesystem image in the filesystem (for loopback mounts) then things go 
horribly wrong.

With Ext3 if you fsck the results are pretty much what you expect, an ext3 
image in the filesystem will remain as just a single file.
