ext3 part fails umount during shutdown

I am having a problem with a ext3 partition. I have RH 7.2, with 2.4.17 kernel with core rpm updates, where during shoutdown the umount for one of the ext3 partitions (the large busy data partition), takes errors- illegal seek- fails to umount "already unounted" ...When the system comes back up it recovers the journal, typically recovering a handful inode issues.
One note is that I run a 400Meg journal file (max'd size out for speed as suggested by the experts), and I am running full journal mode (data=journal). I am running samba for general windows usage, and our own database app that opens mega amounts of files... I have tried to lsof & kill any associated procs' but that doesnt seem to help....?? I have other servers running similar stuff but to a much lesser extent w/o a problem, I have installed fresh, etc - no help...??
