Just a thought... what's the order of mounts in your /etc/fstab? /var
has to be mounted AFTER / is mounted so you should have something like:

/dev/sda1               /               ext2    defaults    1       1
/dev/sdb1               none            swap    sw          1       0
proc                /proc           proc    defaults    1       0
/dev/sda2   /var   ext2    defaults      1   2

in /etc/fstab.
