Journal overflow panic

I've been having a problem for the past few weeks with a file server I
have.  It's recently started throwing a panic after about 24 hours of
service (it's rare that it lasts longer then that...sometimes as low as 20
hrs): Panic String: Journal overflow (joffset=12964580764160
active=12964584978944 inactive=12964580737536) .  I'm on FreeBSD 7.0.  I've
done some digging, and really can't come up with anything.  I've checked the
drives on the controller, and none of them are reporting any errors (3ware
SATA RAID controller).  Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts?
