Yep, that happened to me a few times too.
Usually it'll be fixed if you run e2fsck manually; the reason for that is that
the startup scripts use the --prune option, which will halt on any error
requiring user input.
Sometimes you need -f, but I've never had an ext2 FS get *destroyed*.

Neither would I.
If you can, switch to ReiserFS; if not, ext3.
Reality is just a convenient measure of complexity.
