Bug Description

I'm using Kubuntu 8.04 (KDE4) Amd64 on an Acer 5024Wlmi laptop. The battery has been removed and it runs on wall socket power.
Every time the pc boots, after a certain time the splash screen disappears, and you see all disks are being checked.

*Checking root filesystems
(bla bla, crypto disks)
*Checking file systems
(then it does fsck and then dosfsck on the two Fat32-partitions that are mounted)

Normally, disks are only checked once per 30 mounts. Why are all disks checked every boot?
/etc/fstab is just normal, to my knowledge. There's a '1' in the check-column, but that's quite normal.

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at [WWW] https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see [WWW] https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs .

Please set the Pass option for the FAT32 partitions to 0, fsck should then return to normal operations cycle (except there are errors on the linux partitions), skipping the FAT partitions.
