Um, that it was taking longer than expected?  :-)

Nothing. It just wasn't giving me my prompt back.

That was it. I was worried about nothing. I had already done my job in  
repairing a partition (which started it all, I guess) and salvaging  
the volumes that were on it, and then all I had to do was wait for the  
cron jobs to release the volumes on schedule. It took a while, and  
there were lots more of those "errors", but it eventually finished and  
now everything is fine.

Thanks, Andrew!
