It's not a memory stick, it's a hard disk with ext3 file system. I
just plugged it it and the disk was automatically mounted in /dev/ext3
with no abnormal messages in dmesg. That weird messages appeared when
I unpplugged the disk (without umounting it, as it should be done when
using usbmount, right?).

When mounted I got a message asking for a fsck to be run on disk
because of many mount/umount processes without performing that

By the way I think I've lost no data, but that messages are pretty
scary. I'm sorry I can't help that much, since I'm no more that a user
and big fan of Linux.
