7 Yes, I was clutching at straws, rather.

13 Gparted 0.31.0 on my rescue CD finds no problems. Parted in this system doesn't
14 offer a checking tool, but gdisk does and it reports "no problems". Gparted
15 1.1.0 in this system still reports the errors, but only once now on each disk
16 (so what's changed there? Beats me).
18 Udisks was upgraded on 13 August and I may not have used gparted since then,
19 but reverting to the previous version hasn't helped. All the other packages I
20 mentioned have not been changed for months.
22 So I'm still left wondering what to do. I'm happy that the hardware isn't on
23 the blink, anyway.
