Your problem is on the journal file, so if you mount as ext2, rather than
ext3, it should stay mounted as read/write (unless you've got more problems
than we've seen).

Then try moving the journal (it's a long time since I used ext3, but I'm
pretty sure there are options for that) and remount it as ext3.
