Hi all!

Several times now I have seen the following: fsck-ing the ext3 fs I get
hundreds (if not thousands) of messages:

Indoe NNNN, i_blocks is K, should be (K-8). FIXED:

Interestingly the difference is *always* *always* *always* 8. Can
someone explain me what was going on? Why this?

Thanks a lot and all the best
