Oh, no, I expect the number it reports for the beginning of the partition
is correct, I have no reason to think otherwise.
For Marcin's problem, however, the beginning of the partition is not the
interesting number; afaict he hasn't clobbered his disklabel, only the
first superblock. So he will have to add 16 to the result scan_ffs gives
him to find the sector address of the second superblock, the NN he needs
to give to "fsck_lfs -b $NN".
