    Further to this problem (I'm getting tired of re-booting)...I have
tried copying mail in SYlpheed from Ubuntu (sda3) to Squeeze (sda2)
several times..with and without manually unmounting sda2 before
rebooting. If I unmount sda2 before rebooting after moving mail ,
there is no problem. Squeeze reboots without finding fs errors. If I
don't manually unmount sda2 orphaned nodes are found when squeeze
reboots. Yet when Ubuntu reboots, one of the messages is local file
systems unmounted !! It seems Ubuntu is unmounting sda3, but not
sda2. I guess this now belongs on the Ubuntu list ??
