Unless there hasn't been a check in more than 6 months... then the check 
is forced at next reboot... not necessarily when you would have liked it...

I've had problems with both mailstores in the last 6 months and fsck on 
400G partitions with zillions of files takes a lot of time!  On our new 
servers I created 40 10G partitions (easy to manage with Cyrus).
