Problem is that users will just skip the test, and get tired of "having"
to skip the test each time. Perhaps an alternative would be to check
only a part of the filesystem (e.g. randomly choosen) each time, but I
don't know enough about filesystem (even though I should :) ) to say
it's impossible or feasible.
