Description of Problem:
First boot after dirty poweroff gets stuck recovering journal
It did it several times, enough for me to write most of this bug report.
Now I can not reproduce the bug.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Normal boot (after clean poweroff)
2. Turn off power (dirty!)
3. Turn on power and wait until it gets stuck
4. Turn off power (dirty!)
5. Turn on power.
Step 3 gets stuck checking filesystems:
/usr: recovering journal
hard drive light is stuck on.
no head seek thrashing sounds
Step 5 boots successfully with following sample from /var/log/boot.log:
Sep 4 20:11:09 localhost fsck: /usr: recovering journal
Sep 4 20:11:09 localhost fsck: /usr: clean, 68423/263296 files, 431622/526128 b
Successful boots after each dirty poweroff.
All the partitions are ext3 partitions except for swap.
Cannot reproduce here, so closing down this bug-report.
