Hmmm....I don't know if I would describe that as "normal"
unless I am misunderstanding Dave here.
There has been some recovery happening indicating that there
wasn't a clean unmount (it didn't find an unmount record in the log).
But recovery should have replayed the
outstanding metadata to a time point in the near past
and so no repair should be necessary (we have qa tests which do the
test anyway and check that there are no complaints).
