I have 15 partitions on my system, spread out over 6 scsi disks, and 1 ide

I just had a hang, and rebooted. From the log messages, the fscks were
started in parallel as expected, but /gear and /crank (/dev/sdc1 and
/dev/sdc3) did not finish by the time the netfs script was run. This
resulted in /crank and /gear being mounted at the same time fsck was still
working on the disk.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have many large disk partitions spread out over several disks
2. Reboot the system without unmounting the disks
3. Watch the log messages
4. Log on and verify that disks are mounted while being fixed.
Actual Results: Potential data corruption if I hadn't caught it and rerun
Expected Results: It is a very serious error for /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to
proceed while any disk is still being fixed up. Other startup scripts
might depend on disks being mounted, and there certainly seems to be a
large risk that a disk might be trashed while it is mounted and fsck is
still working on the partition.
Does this still happen with e2fsprogs-1.20-0.01 from
What is in /etc/fstab for these partitions that are mounted in the background?
I don't see how this could happen. Please re-open if this is still a problem.
