The only thing here is "normal" log recovery, nothing that should indicate

Well... if you shut down your system cleanly, you should not be doing
recovery, so something is still not right (assuming that the messages
you posted were after a normal shutdown).
It was a normal shutdown, :-(
...and it also did't disappear if I had rebooted the mashine a few
times. It disappeared if I started a repair from my "repairsystem".
Let's see how it's going on ....
One possibility here is the ide cache is not getting flushed
during shutdown - although that would only be an issue on
power down I think. If you just reboot without powering down
it should survive.
The write cache is disabled on the 2 ide disks (with the ibm tool) so this
should not be the point. And I normally do reboots without powering down ;-)
The only cache that's left is the read ahead cache of the drives.......
but I don't want to disable it too ;-) (And I also think that this will
not be neccessary).
ps: does any of the xfs_developers have a 2.4.19pre8-xfs patch (still
unoficial) and can mail it to me, perhaps the ataraidcode is fixed there
a little bit more .....
