Anyone else install fcheck?

I'm coming in after the system has been sitting overnight to find a 
number of fcheck processes (and apparently associated md5sum processes) 
running on the system sucking up huge amounts of memory, killing my 
system with thrashing.  Cron must be somehow running it.

I have a remote large NAS mounted in /mnt/nas, but I have /mnt/ in the 
exlusion list of the config file.

Anyone see this happen before? It is so bad I have to manually shut the 
power off to restore control.  I don't know why it would keep getting 
spawned repeatedly overnight.
