I have had the fsck problem before when booting this PC, and it when I then get a low graphics login screen, I reboot, and the problem goes away. But this time it keeps recurring, and only the recent occurences since i installed 9.04 on another partition.

I looked into the logs, and found this at the end of /var/log/messages:

Jun  2 14:57:54 ubuntu8amd64 kernel: [  913.899185] usplash[7352]: segfault at ffffffcc rip 7fe342f1e82f rsp 7fff4bb2b140 error 6
Jun  2 14:58:00 ubuntu8amd64 libvirtd: Shutting down on signal 15
Jun  2 14:58:02 ubuntu8amd64 exiting on signal 15

There is no mention of fsck in the logs.
