Sometime ago I was Angry and posted a Bugzilla over here:


I saw the warning on two/three machines and I ran the tools that they asked me.  I disabled the warning  by going to startup sessions on one machine and on the other I moved to KDE.  That way I got not see that error message which BTW (Is a bunch of BULL$HIT)  IF my drives were failing they would have died by now, I did have one die, but I did not even get the warning it just DIED :( 

Add stuff/enhance the bugzilla.
