EXT3-FS error

I am one that is being plagued by the EXT3-FS error (Device DM-0) in  
start transaction Journal has aborted, and trying to find the cause.  
This error repeats continually and locks up the server, and in the  
early hours of the morning.
I am running a new Dell 2900 with a Perci 5 integrated controller  
with 3 146GB SAS hard drives and Centos 4.4 X86_64  with all the  
latest updates including the Perci5 drivers and updates.

The above error happens at around the time below and at the end of  
the following messages. I do not really understand why cupsd decided  
to shutdown and restart and the relevance of nmbd dumping the nmb  
serices but normally this ends in a server locking up. the only  
redress is to perform a hard restart as the server will not respond  
to anything keyed in.
This EXT3-FS error error didn't happen last night, but I recognise  
these logs as the prelude to the error, the only difference last  
night was there was not  any users logged in at all.

Appreciate any-ones comments on what is happening below?
