Is this reproducible? (I shall try this myself, but not right now)

Instead of a time interval between checks you could use a counter to have
the fs checked every now and then. From tune2fs(8):
Adjust the maximal time between two filesystem checks. No
postfix or d result in days, m in months, and w in weeks. A value
of zero will disable the time-dependent checking.
Adjust the number of mounts after which the filesystem
will be checked by e2fsck(8). If max-mount-counts is 0 or -1,
the number of times the filesystem is mounted will be disregarded by
e2fsck(8) and the kernel.
BOFH excuse #404:
Sysadmin accidentally destroyed pager with a large hammer.
