Maybe fsck is failing to clean your filesystem or something ? A boot
-s followed by a successful fsck should get rid of them.
I was seeing them at Usenix and mentioned it to Kirk. He explained
their nature -- ie, you've just got some blocks and inodes marked in
use that shouldn't be.
Or maybe these numbers are the only thing corrupt about your fs....
so they're not being re-written after fsck finishes ???
