Therein lies the problem, it needs to "dump" the FS, so that  0  2 should 
have been 1  1 if its /  , and 1  2  for any otehr mounted partition, try 
it :)

In fact, I insist, because all your doing is telling fsck to "not give a 
damn" but at the same time the corruption risk is still very very real and 
likely occuring.
