You upgraded e2fsprogs to 1.19 in the meantime.

Please use "-O none" or "-O sparse_super", nd your problems will
disappear. The filetype feature is not really supported on the Hurd
(although we can ignore it quite well :), and newer e2fsck get really
annoyed by it.

You can also run "e2fsck -y /dev/hda7" and get the filetype
removed afterwards.

BTW, this time I was able to guess your problem. Next time please
provide all the necessary information, for example the exact
error message of e2fsck (it actually tells you about the filetype).
