Makes sense. Due to a problem in how / was being mounted & chrooted
into, we never completed the unmount at shutdown time. When this was
happening, our / was also 'dirty' but ext3 journal magic hides that.

Daniel fixed this -- and the fix should be in the recent builds. Does
it continue to happen with current builds?
