But you *still* haven't actually understood my problem!  :-)

In the past (i.e. previous xubuntu installations) whenever the system
decided it was time to do a disk check automatically it would do the
disk check *and* put a message up on the GUI to say what was
happening.  This no longer seems to happen, the system just displays
the xubuntu logo for a *very* long time (if it's my 3Tb disk being
checked) with no indication as to why it appears to be doing nothing.
