Right :-)

Possibly the fsck routine was using the cmos clock to know the current
time. Yeah, that's it. Look:

nimrodel:~ # ls /etc/init.d/boot.d/*localfs /etc/init.d/boot.d/*clock
/etc/init.d/boot.d/K18boot.clock /etc/init.d/boot.d/S07boot.localfs
/etc/init.d/boot.d/K19boot.localfs /etc/init.d/boot.d/S08boot.clock


The S07boot.localfs executes before /etc/init.d/boot.d/S08boot.clock,
meaning that the fsck program runs before the system clock is properly
set up.



( See how nice is an small email, trimmed to the point? ;-) )
