This is the first time I've seen this fix.  I've seen other means of
using tune2fs, such as setting to a high number and resetting the count
on each reboot.  But I hadn't seen that it could be disabled this way.

This fixes my immediate problem.  But as I've said before - there are
other reasons my clients don't like the way Debian is going, and the
decision has already been made to look at another distro.  And I have to
be developing on the same distros they are using.
