Does your second email suggest removing the "quiet" parameter?

This is what I currently have;
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet fsck.mode=force"

Not sure whether you fixed the problem or not. It's an intriguing
question so I thought I'd spent a little time trying to create a
non-default GRUB entry that would allow me to reboot a remote headless
server into a forced full fsck of the root (ext4) file system (I don't
have any production servers with single slice file systems (as it'd
forever to fsck), but I'm not going to fiddle with production servers
anyway so I'll test with a single slice VM headless server spun up
for this purpose).

Just quickly, check that you haven't inherited from Squeeze fsck on
disabled with:-
grep FSCK /etc/default/rcS

(If you installed Jessie from scratch you should not have that
unless you followed random intertubes suggestions).
