Question journal recovery question

Ok, I just built a slackware 9 machine and I've run into something that I'm curious about. I installed the file systems as ext3 with journaling. After a hard reboot, I'm stuck during boot up (after LILO) with the following prompt:
JBD: Clearing recovery information on journal.

Been stuck here for 30 mins or so. The system has 50GB but less than 2GB used space (just the install).

So the question is - if we have get stuck in journal recovery, how long can I expect it to take. I would expect it to take less than this, but having not seen it before - don't know what to expect.

Is it possible that your files are mounted as ext2 in your fstab?

No they're listed as ext3 - I was using the automated install to select, format & mount the partitions.

Strangest thing: I resrtarted again after standing the PC up (had it laying on the bench) and it booted fine. I'll reseat everything and see what happens.
Thanks for the help

if it was mounted as ext2 I wouldn't have thought that would be much of a problem, I wouldn't expect any recovery journal stuff, odd
