I think reiserfsck simply refuses to run on a partition that is mounted read-write. You should run it with the partition not mounted at all, if possible, or mounted read-only otherwise.

If this is your root partition, you want things to happen in this order:
- mount it read-only
- fsck
- remount it read-write
Check your startup script(s) and boot options.
