When a use "mkfs.ext3 device" on a small device,
- it does not create a journal,
- says with it cannot,
- and succeeds.
However, i thought the main feature of ext3 compared to ext2 was the journal, so i'm surprised that mkfs.ext3 doesn't exit on error.
When i mount my filesystem with "mount -t ext3 ..." it exits on error, because there is no journal.
When i mount it with auto-detection, it mounts an ext2 filesystem. This may seem normal, but i invoked "mkfs.ext3", because i wanted an ext3 filesystem.
Do you think this is a bug ?
