The problem appears to have been specific to a single filesystem that was corrupted in some way that e2fsck did not detect. e2fsck would report the fs as clean (even with a forced check) but the problem would come back, always on inodes around the 211,000 number.

The filesystem eventually trashed itself, but I made a fat-fingered mistake and backed up the wrong image whenthe problem first manifested. Hence I can't reproduce the problem now because I had to re-image the root drive.

From this, I'd say this is not a regression, so closing this bug is fine by me...

Closing, then.
