Check filesystem creation date:

e2fsprogs (1.42~WIP-2011-07-02-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * Mke2fs will now create file systems that enable user namespace
      extended attributes and with time- and mount count-based file
      system checks disabled.

The root of my sid install was created before that, so I was still 
getting the periodic check for it. The other ext4 filesystems were 
newer, so weren't checked (and I didn't even notice it).

I've just disabled the automatic check on the root partition as well, 
but I'm considering how to implement a forced fsck every now and then, 
including an xfs partition, which wouldn't be checked at boot anyway.

Kind regards,
