"Giving up on 2 buffers" message when rebooting while ext2fs mounted

I've just installed my FreeBSD system and upgraded it to the lastest
-STABLE with buildworld .
I have an EXT3 partition on my second harddrive that I mount read-only
with the command :
mount -o ro -t ext2fs /dev/ad1s1 /mount_point
The problem is that if I reboot without umounting that filesystem I
get this message on reboot :
syncing disks, buffers remaining... 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
giving up on 2 buffers
After the reboot the file systems are considered "unclean" and checked
If I umount the ext3 filesystem before rebooting I get the "No busy
buffers" message and all is fine .
What is causing this?
