This error is usually caused by a filesystem corruption; specifically,
either a corrupted block allocation bitmap or a corrupted block group
descriptor.  This error means that number of bits set in the block
allocation bitmap (32254) doesn't match the number that is reflected
in the summary block group descriptor statistics (32258).

I should probably change this error message so it's clearer what this
means to civilians.

If you run e2fsck on the file system, it will fix the file system
corruption.  If you can reliably reproduce the problem after e2fsck is
run, that would be useful to know.
