can't fsck ext2 floppy (etch/sid)

I'm unable to fsck an ext2 floppy on my laptop under etch or sid:

	# e2fsck /dev/fd0
	e2fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
	Error determining size of the physical device: Device or resource busy

The laptop is a Winbook Si.  From dmesg:

	Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
	FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077

I can, however, mount and use the floppy.  There is no problem
under sarge (e2fsck 1.37).  And, with no floppy in the drive,
e2fsck correctly complains "No such device..".
