Mount pending error?

Last night, this appeared in my logs (and on my console):
Nov 23 03:05:36 zappa kernel: /data: mount pending error: blocks -1696 files 0
What is a "mount pending error?" I have heard this in conjunction with
unclean shutdowns and fsck, but my system was not shut down recently,
nor has /data (on a geom_stripe) been unmounted (cleanly or otherwise).
The only thing I have done that could be related is to make a snapshot
(later removed), but it was not of the filesystem being complained
about. (Also, I create and mount snapshots of all my filesystems as
part of my nightly TSM backup.)
I guess I should shutdown and fsck just to make certain everything is
okay. I am puzzled why this happened, though. (I've been running the
backups for a while, and have not had any complaints.)
BTW, I'm running RELENG_5, last rebuilt Nov. 19th 2004.
