While this is sort of like treating a hangnail with amputation of the
whole arm, it may get you back on your feet pretty quickly.  Why not
back up /home using something like the LiveCD and then reformat it
ext3fs (or reiserfs or whatever) and restore it?  I mean I backed up my
home and reinstalled all of Ubuntu (repartitioning with wild abandon in
the process) in less than four hours.  How long can one tar/dar/whatever
matched with a mkfs and a tar/dar/whatever back possibly take?
