Yeah I might say it's rather needed....

The novice end user behaviour I saw when fsck was running in the 
background was *interesting* but not *surprising*..

The novice end user waited for a little over what normally took him to 
reach GDM then he pressed the reboot button, then he repeated the same 
behaviour about 3 - 5 times depending on that particular user patience 
then he started to power off/on until he finally gave up and called for 

I think poor fsck have never suffer as much as then and all it wanted to 
do was to do the job it was program for, check the consistency of a file 
system for his overlord the end user.

So please Ray please save fsck from the abuse of the novice end users 
all it wants to do is to perform the task it is programmed for 
*uninterrupted*. . .

he he =)
