Since it appears tightly related with the FS (I was able to boot with
one or several reboots into recovery and forcing fsck) I am clearly
concerned that the shutdown is never clean, so it all adds up creating

Can we understand why my shutdown is not clean?
No.  Although the shutdown sometimes hangs, it is quite reliable
nowadays.  Just do a normal sysvinit shutdown (e.g. use halt, or

I think I used poweroff. In case I try entering the kernel debugger the next time and report the processes. A clean shut/down used to bring me to "in thight loop, ctrl-alt-del"... or perhaps in an actual ACPI shutdown nowadays?

That being said, there are two issues that fsck will constantly
complain about:

/dev/hd0s1: Deleted inode 95849 has zero dtime.  FIXED.

Yes, these are old friends in HURD :(

But I do fsck every now and then!

This is somewhat benign, but they accumulate until there is no free
inode left.  Then ext2fs crashes.  Affects only the root filesystem.
Solution: fsck every now and then.  Proper solution: kill almost all
processes, then umount the root filesystem.  We will be able to do
this with the bootshell.

/dev/hd0s1: i_file_acl_hi for inode 81872 (/proc) is 32, shoud be 0.

This is actually a bug in fsck, fixed upstream.

I got this one on /dev/console
