Thank-you for responding Ted,

I can see how I could have made an error when running the
SuSE rescue-disk fsck - but I can't imagine how I could have
done anything that would sabotage the fsck forced by
"shutdown -r -F" - and that was the one which really
scared me. I did my best to report the error messages fsck
displayed, and I think I have summarised them accurately -
they were the only ones I saw.  I understand, however, that
it is very difficult for you to diagnose an error which I
cannot now reproduce.

I ran a "shutdown -r -F" again this afternoon and it
completed without problems.

In case it is a hardware thing, I have made sure that the
removable clone of my hdd that I keep (usually in my safe),
is up-to-date and working.

Thanks again,
