The reality is that there was nothing wrong with my disk, the file system just got corrupted from not being shut down. That is just plain terrible. I have never had that happen with EXT3 or NTFS.
The blkid library is much better, and Debian uses the blkid library for util-linux. Unfortunately, Ubuntu chose to make this decision for some unknown reason. For other versions of Ubuntu, the patch that was applied can be found here.
I finally gave up and I find it one of the rather disappointing things about Linux. If I can't fix something as stupid as a disk error, then what does that say for regular users who have no tech skills??
