A reasonable hunch, but no, it is not normal for an ext3 root fs to show
up as ext2 in /proc/mounts:

# cat /proc/mounts
rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev/root / ext3 rw 0 0
/proc /proc proc rw 0 0

Perhaps you don't have ext3 support built in to the kernel? If not,
you'll need an initrd to boot your root fs as ext3.

As far as the active inodes on /dev/hdb1, one thing you might try is:

fuser -vm /dev/hdb1

If there's a process accessing /dev/hdb1, it will be listed.
