A very good hint. Didn't I mention it? No? Bad idea.

Background concept: The fsck utility does changes to the file system
when repairing it, and the kind of these changes implies that the file
system is not mounted, so there's no unexpected interruption by maybe
a write operation from a program.

That's what downtime is good for - letting fsck doing its job well.
