For some time I have been seeing disk errors in the syslog every seven days.  Until today it always happens Sunday morning at 8:13 AM, plus or minus a minute or two.  Yesterday it happened at 1:13 AM.  Here are the pertinent log entries for the latest occurrence:

There is nothing in /etc/cron.weekly, nor are there any root crontab entries.  Any suggestions for investigating this issue would be much appreciated.
