As far as I can see, the init.d/checkfs.sh script just call fsck -A
(and a few other arguments), and there is no code in the script to
process /etc/fstab.

There code in init.d/checkroot.sh process fstab, but should only work
on /, so I assume it is not related to your problem.  You might try to
replace 'read' with 'read -r' in the script and see if it solve your
problem, but I doubt it and suspect your problem need to be fixed in
fsck or fsck.vfat.

Please test and let me know if -r solve your problem.  If I do not
hear anything in a month, I'll reassign this issue to the package
providing fsck.vfat.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
