Same issue (long boot time) happening again today; a specific appVM
(which has been resized multiple times in the last 2 years) took 2'40"
to run an e2fsck pass. No errors reported from fsck (I added a couple
rows in /usr/lib/qubes/init/setup-rwdev.sh). After it was run, resize2fs
stopped complaining.

I discovered that resize2fs seems to be extremely picky about date and
time, particularly regarding the check about last fsck run: from

So this latency, and the fact that fsck seems to be run nearly on every
boot, may have to do with time being inconsistent (actually, all VM
environments are known for time issues).

I've had some problems in the past with shutdown because of some issues
in pulseaudio; you can try to investigate with the last lines of a
guest.log from the affected machines. Now I'm not having this situation
