  fsck doesn't update system info on login

Status in “update-notifier” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Every time I login to my Ubuntu 11.04 Alpha 1 (server), I see this

  *** /dev/sda5 will be checked for errors at next reboot ***

  I have done both the 'touch /forcefsck' (file is gone after reboot)
  and I have done 'shutdown -rF now' and yet the message is still
  displayed.  I checked my boot.log and fsck did run:

  fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 
  fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 
  /dev/mapper/sh*tbox1-root: clean, 103845/4669440 files, 1179707/18669568 blocks
  /dev/sda5: clean, 245/124496 files, 83515/248976 blocks

  Since fsck did run successfully, the '*** /dev/sda5 will be checked
  for errors at next reboot ***' message should not appear again unless
  the system has determined the filesystem is dirty. I seriously doubt
  that this not very old drive is having this many problems, especially
  since the OS runs 24/7 with no problems besides this.
