when is fsck required?



Hi,
 
can anyone give me an example of
when an fsck would repair something
that the ext3 driver would not?  with
full "data="" journaling, would
fsck ever need to be run if all the
partitions were ext3?
 
the ext3 mini-howto refers to "certain
rare hardware failure cases (e.g. hard
drive failures)" that would require a
filesystem check, but doesn't go into
details.
 
thanks in advance.
 
Regards,
