Really? This is SU+J journalling that I'm using. Not gjournal. Surely 
SU+J does require softupdates to be on as it's part of the same thing? 
Output from tunefs -p:

tunefs: soft updates: (-n)                                 enabled
tunefs: soft update journaling: (-j)                       enabled
tunefs: gjournal: (-J)                                     disabled
