This is a harmless message. If you mount and unmount an ext2 partition a
certain number of times, fsck checks it just to make sure it doesn't
contain any errors.

On an ext2 partition there is a counter which is reset when you check it.
When you unmount a partition (I think it is then) it is increased by one.
When the counter reaches a certain value (I believe 20 or 25), the
partition is checked the next time you run fsck on it, no matter what.

This could mean /var/catman has, somehow, got the wrong permissions. You
can correct this by running these two commands as root:

# rm -rf /var/catman
# mkcatdirs man root 0755

For an explanation of the mkcatdirs command, run it with no parameters.
