Hi everybody!

I don't know much about ext filesystems, so please be patient if this
suggestion is a little silly. I think that would be best if ubuntu
performs fsck only when something out of normal happens (a hard shut
down, for instance). I guess that if the system works fine, so it will
the file system. Am I wrong about it?
