In changed mount script(lunar-init 0.1.2) used option -y for automatic repair filesystem. But this option not have standardized implementation and in  some fsck have other meaning. Maybe need use -p ?  
Best regards, Denis.  
       Options to different filesystem-specific fsck's are  not  standardized.  
       If  in  doubt,  please consult the man pages of the filesystem-specific  
       checker.  Although not guaranteed, the following options are  supported  
       by most file system checkers:  
       -a     Automatically  repair the file system without any questions (use  
              this option with caution).  Note that e2fsck(8) supports -a  for  
              backwards compatibility only.  This option is mapped to e2fsck's  
              -p option which is safe to use, unlike the -a option  that  some  
              file system checkers support.  
       -n     For  some filesystem-specific checkers, the -n option will cause  
              the fs-specific fsck to avoid attempting to repair any problems,  
              but  simply report such problems to stdout.  This is however not  
              true  for  all  filesystem-specific  checkers.   In  particular,  
              fsck.reiserfs(8)  will  not  report any corruption if given this  
              option.  fsck.minix(8) does not support the -n option at all.  
       -r     Interactively repair the  filesystem  (ask  for  confirmations).  
              Note:  It is generally a bad idea to use this option if multiple  
              fsck's are being run  in  parallel.   Also  note  that  this  is  
              e2fsck's default behavior; it supports this option for backwards  
              compatibility reasons only.  
       -y     For some filesystem-specific checkers, the -y option will  cause  
              the  fs-specific  fsck  to  always  attempt  to fix any detected  
              filesystem corruption automatically.  Sometimes an expert may be  
              able  to do better driving the fsck manually.  Note that not all  
              filesystem-specific checkers implement this option.  In particu-  
              lar  fsck.minix(8)  and  fsck.cramfs(8)  does not support the -y  
              option as of this writing.  
       -p     Automatically repair ("preen") the file system.  This option will cause e2fsck to automatically fix  
              any filesystem problems that can be safely fixed without human intervention.  If e2fsck discovers a  
              problem  which  may  require  the system administrator to take additional corrective action, e2fsck  
              will print a description of the problem and then exit with the value 4  logically  or'ed  into  the  
              exit  code.   (See  the  EXIT  CODE  section.)   This  option is normally used by the system's boot  
              scripts.  It may not be specified at the same time as the -n or -y options.  
       -y     Assume  an  answer  of  `yes'  to  all questions; allows e2fsck to be used non-interactively.  This  
              option may not be specified at the same time as the -n or -p options.  
       --yes, -y  
              This option inhibits fsck.reiserfs from asking you for confirmation after telling you  what  it  is  
              going  to  do.  It  will  assuem  you confirm. For safety, it does not work with the --rebuild-tree  
       -a, -p These options are usually passed by fsck -A during  the  automatic  checking  of  those  partitions  
              listed  in /etc/fstab. These options cause fsck.reiserfs to print some information about the specified  
              filesystem, to check if error flags in the superblock are set  and  to  do  some  light-weight  
              checks.  If these checks reveal a corruption or the flag indicating a (possibly fixable) corruption  
              is found set in the superblock, then fsck.reiserfs switches to the fix-fixable mode.  If  the  flag  
              indicating  a  fatal corruption is found set in the superblock, then fsck.reiserfs finishes with an  
 If no options are selected, the default is -p.  
       -a     Autocheck mode - Replay the transaction log.  Do not continue fsck processing unless the  aggregate  
              state  is  dirty or the log replay failed.  Functionally equivalent to -p.  Autocheck mode is typi-  
              cally the default mode used when jfs_fsck is called at boot time.  
      -p     Automatically  repair ("preen") the file system.  Replay the transaction log.  Do not continue fsck  
              processing unless the aggregate state is dirty or the log replay failed.   Functionally  equivalent  
              to -a.
