hello, i noticed today that the automatic (periodic) fsck blanked out my
screen completely, except of course for the CLI cursor on the top left.
What i would have expected to happen:
* i start the computer
* it loads linux and shows me either progress or results until i see the
login screen and my mouse cursor

What happened:
* i started the computer
* fsck started invisibly without notification of any kind
* for about a minute i didn't know what was wrong with the boot procedure
due to a blank screen
* suddenly the mouse cursor and login screen appeared
