Comment 161 for bug 1073433

This does seem to be getting kind of embarassing. With modern journalled
filesystems on relatively straightforward hardware configs an unclean
shutdown shouldn't be the end of the world (after all, power failures
can happen), but it's not "nice" either.

Unfortunately we also seem to have a hell of a lot of noise on Launchpad
about this, people conflating different issues and causes, not reading
previous posts properly, etc., etc.

I'll be upgrading to 14.04 from 12.04 for main machines when it comes
out, if the problem's still present then I will have another look. Last
time I did, my own problems were caused by dhclient and ureadahead.. I
can't remember which if any of those have now been fixed. If nothing
else, pushing those fixes out will show if there are other outstanding
shutdown problems affecting a lot of users.
