Ok, as many of you pointed out, the raid arrays did not start 
automatically on "linux rescue" boot (when not mounting the arrays).

I followed Mogens' advice: I let linux rescue mount the arrays, then 
checked /etc/mtab and unmounted everything. After that fsck run ok.

(Turned out the filesystems were ok, so my problem must lie elsewhere.)
