could you give the /etc/fstab file
in fstab check whether the last two bits (for you home partition) are 0 0
or 0 1
or 0 2

don't disable it, that's a daft idea. what you can do is to increase the number of times it is mounted between forced checks using tune2fs (see manpage" but don't disable it. leave that 1 1 just as it is.

well
change the last 1 to 2
so that it becomes 1 2
the fifth bit 1 (fs_freq)(checked whether filesystem needs to be dumped) can be changed to 0 too
the sixth bit 2(fs_passno) is used by fsck determine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time
if it is 1 it is considered as root device(which /home is not)
and 2 means other filesystems
the 2 also means that after 1 (your root partition) this partition will be checked
keep posted
