I see a handful of this type of notification not uncommonly on boot-up, and I suspect it's from this cause, for the simple reason that most of my shutdowns are unclean; specifically, most of my shutdowns are due to power loss. I don't tend to shut the machine down on purpose very often. I don't find it surprising that orphaned inodes happen when the filesystem didn't get a chance to clean up in the normal course of operation. -- The Wanderer The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.
