Hm, on the image you provided to me for analysis, it was
indeed somewhat corrupted; I got about 400 lines of output
from e2fsck.  However - did you take the image while it was
mounted, or did you unmount it first?


Anyway, inode 274258 wasn't in the fsck output.

However, I can reproduce the error you got:

[429903.549764] EXT4-fs error (device loop0): ext4_ext_search_left:1252: inode #274258: comm flush-7:0: ix (3666) != EXT_FIRST_INDEX (0) (depth 0)!

so I'll see what's going on here.

Thanks,
