    Maybe the maximal mount count between filesystem checks is set too low.
    Take a look at the man page for tune2fs if you use ext2 or ext3.

    I don't know, try to unmount the partition and check it manually with -f
    to enforce a complete check even if the file system is marked clean.
    Normally the mount count should be reset after the check.

    yes, manual checking (-f was not even needed) revealed and fixed errors that were not seen
    during the automatic check during the boot process.
    Funny!

    Anyway, thanks for your help.
