In the case of ext2 w/ journal, fsck will apply the journal and call it 
good unless the "superblock indicates that further checking is required 
(man page)"  I suspect it may just check the superblock in the ext2 w/ 
no journal case.

Use -f to force the check.


Thank you!? The new FC7 (just installed and updated) - the man entry for fsck does not mention the -f or force.? You'd think that they would mention at least the major flow-through options.
