This should help you:


dmesg | grep mount
and also this:

cat /proc/filesystems

When there is any problem we can run fsck:

-bash-2.05b# fsck
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
e2fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
/dev/ubd/0 is mounted.

WARNING!!!  Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause
SEVERE filesystem damage.

Do you really want to continue (y/n)? yes

/dev/ubd/0: recovering journal

/dev/ubd/0: clean, 136051/384768 files, 541660/768256 blocks
Please, do not try fsck on your production server the way I have shown above. It is a test box so no problem for me.

Some logs can be useful in /var/log/

more boot.log | grep mount | more

more messages
your question is indeed interesting. I will find out more information on it.
