It was the fact you had never checked /etc/localtime.rpmnew

AFAICT, your BIOS clock was set to localtime, your setting was set to
UTC, and when it boot the time stamp for the hard drive was in the
future as compared to the BIOS clock, causing it to be marked as
inconsistent and an fsck run to fix the inconsistency. The problem
could have been avoided by dealing with your localtime file or setting
it to what your BIOS clock was set to in Yast. You set your clock to
agree with your settings instead of vice versa, which also works.
