I can not reproduce it, nor I can understand why. This is what
essentially happens (end of `checkfs.sh', start of `mountall.sh')

	. /lib/lsb/init-functions
	log_success_msg 'done checking file systems.
	A log is being saved in filler ${FSCK_LOGFILE} if that location is writable'
	log_daemon_msg "Will now mount local filesystems"
	log_end_msg 0

And it works fine to me.

Mystery is that all entities involved (lsb-functions, corresponding
parts `checkfs.sh' and `mountall.sh') did not change since 2006...
