You are right Puchar, but sometimes (2 in 100 on powerfailure) the
gets corrupted (database files opened, and being extended)...  so
when the fsck enters, the database get corrupted..  
by using zfs or journaling I never have anothter database problem....

People can say it is better to use a no-break in the server, Right again
but in my case of about 1000 servers, after 2 years the batteries does
function any more... and I can rely only in the filesystem...
a shell script that moves the partition to another HD previously
with ZFS (on amd64) or journaling (i386)   solves my problem....
