Similar results below.  Bummer.  Thanks for clarifying.

The needs_recovery flag is set.  Please run e2fsck before clearing

Consider that I'm quite ignorant about filesystem integrity - except to
say that I'm in favor of it.

When you say "a bad sign" should I take that to mean that my filesystem is
likely to be sufficiently lacking intergrity that additional time invested
may be fruitless?

I don't want to waste your time (yours individually or the lists'
collectively.)

Thanks again for the assistance.

Tom
