Stuart, no offence can be taken ar all - I cam see two possibilities - u did smth very stupid or its a glitch. 
I actually selected "shutdown" option in kde.

I cant say that fsck fixed - it reported a short read. I got completely shocked and just for the hell of it ran la just to observe that. Everything is "back".
Since then I copied all files. To backup lv and ran that fack. Last reported no problem.

You mentioned something about extended partitions?

The sfdisk output looks ok.  Now don't be offended, just ruling out 
obvious things that could have gone wrong.  You did shutdown before
switching off the machine, right?

By any chance, did fsck fix stuff?  Have you looked in lost+found?
