Yup. I had that same thought, and have removed that character.

For posterity's sake, I discovered that that output (to stdout)
from fsck is normal, but can be prevented with the "notitle" setting,
which for fsck is "-T". If I modify checkfs.sh to add a -T to the
fsck line mentioned earlier, that ugly bit goes away.
*But*, if the right answer is just to get rid of the fsck, that
should only require deleting the /etc/init.d/checkfs.sh, and links to
it, correct? That shouldn't be too hard to do somewhere in live-
helper... Would that really be the right answer? Just not doing a
fsck at all? I guess it makes sense, since in theory the filesystem
on the CD can't really be dirty. Does it work the same with with USB
or disk-based live systems?
