Who am I to argue with a super-coder's views. :) I would look at it this

He says

  If an fsck is started after boot is complete we really shouldn't try to
  take posession of /dev/tty1 again, since X11 or a getty might run on it,
  and things would get very confused if we'd try to read input from that.

but being pragmatic, if you applied the suggested change, tested and
found no confusion taking place then keep it.

I'm not completely happy with that approach but if it works, it works.

I'd like to suggest 'tune2fs -c -1 /dev/sdaX' and running an fsck when
*you* decide but the heavens could fall in. :)

But it does get you responses.
