I just noticed the following lines ahead of the fsck in the log --

Invoking userspace resume from /dev/hda1
resume: Could not stat configuration file
resume: libgcrypt version: 1.2.3
resume: Could not read the image
Invoking in-kernel resume from /dev/hda1 <-- swap
Waiting for device /dev/hda2 to appear ok

Could the fact that it's trying to do a resume and is unable to be the cause
of the problem? I really don't need resume from disk anyway. How can I
turn that off? I'll start looking for that setting under /etc/sysconfig
