Did you ever use WinXP and run chkdsk from the command line? It warns
you that it can't *correct* errors (a reboot is needed if errors are
found), but it can at least *detect* errors on a mounted and active
partition (even the boot partition, in case you wondered). Why should
Linux not be able to copy this behavior?
