If you reboot your machine by typing 'reboot' you don't run the various rc.d scripts to turn off any services you have running. If a process has an open file descriptor onto the root FS and doesn't play ball with the usual sync and dismount procedure, it could have the results you observe. Try using the command: # shutdown -r now to get a clean shutdown and reboot.
