This makes sense, but the drive was never unmounted improperly... it would have had to have been done the night before, and my system was shut down without incident... we'll never know probably, but it's back to Blowfish encryption for me from an external country...
The disk image mounter will do a verification and partial repair if the unmounted flag in the volume header is left off (usually caused by detaching a drive without unmounting it or a system crash).

Had you already provided your password to unlock the disk image when
the message popped up? It sounds like the disk image mounter was running a checksum verification check before allowing it to mount.
