Hacked debian.

Something about root not being mounted so it can't be remounted.
I need the details on this one. This sounds like it could be the Debian mount getting confused by /proc/mounts and/or /etc/mtab.

I cheated: I added "rw" to the command line. But results are the same
as in normal case, even strace looked the same.

Any ideas?

read(3, "/dev/hda4\t/\text2\tdefaults,commit"..., 4096) = 601

Yes, check your /etc/fstab. You're trying (explicitly) to mount an ext3 filesystem as ext2, but your /etc/fstab contains ext3-related options. This means that mount(8) will try to add them to the remount, and the remount will fail because you're passing options to the filesystem that the filesystem doesn't understand.
