This is indeed weird, because I'd only expect translators not to work.
Which version of e2fsprogs do you have installed under Linux? If it is 1.15,
this may be a new problem.
It's not such a big deal because you are supposed to set -o hurd anyway, but
it would be nice to know if e2fsprogs 1.15 works at least with -o hurd. The
Hurd can't read ext2fs partitions created by the new mke2fs currently :-/
