Possible funny with /sbin/fsck

Howdy - we have a bunch of dual processor Compaqs with 180GB RAID
partitions for email, running with ext2 for the last year or so.  I
thought I'd try out ext3 (on our development machine :-) to see
whether it was a practical proposition for this kind of thing yet.

Appears to be working so far, with a 300MB journal (based on the rule 
of thumb in the ext3 README), but we did notice that whereas our
(RedHat) /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit said to do a...

        initlog -c "fsck -C -T -R -A -a $fsckoptions"

to check the non-root filesystems, we actually got a crash from the
fsck parent process until we changed to serialized fscking, viz.

        initlog -c "fsck -s -C -T -R -A -a $fsckoptions"

If this isn't a known problem (I've only been skimmed the list
postings, so apologies if I'm rehashing old stuff here), I can attempt
to ferret out the cause...

Cheers,

Martin
