It's been a long time since i started to always do "sync; reboot"
instead of just "reboot". I've always felt this is safer.
But you're right, the OS should do that for me, at the right time.
Therefore, i've submitted a bug report to bugzilla.redhat.com:


Please go to the bug report and add your own comments (actually,
everyone's invited to do that). I have a feeling that they will dismiss
it as "XFS specific" or something like that, which i believe would be
But if quite a few people will agree with the solution proposed in the
bug report, maybe RH will fix the init scripts. ;-)
