    I wonder Is error related to application or ext2? what's your stress testing tool?

    There is no tool as such. I have opened around 10 telnet sessions where i do the ftp get and put operations simultaneously.

    Actually the prints are not coming always. Can you suggest when can these prints possible come?

    google with the term "ext2_free_blocks: Freeing blocks not in datazone" gave me lot of links.
    Seems like hardware related issue.

    better drop a mail to ext2 user mailing list and check your hardware using smartctl command.
