Did it go away during the update you mentioned? Did
the update somehow remove ext2 support (in favour of
using "fuse" tools)?

Did you update your source tree? Check if the directory
/usr/src/sbin/mount_ext2fs exists and if you can run
a "make install" from there. The command should then
be "mount_ext2fs" (not mount_ext2), and similarly the
command "mount -t ext2fs /dev/ada1s3 /mnt".
