During shutdown usually (but _not_ always) get an infinite loop with the 
following message displayed ad nauseum, right after the "syncing disks" 

   spec_fsync: dirty: type VBLK, usecount 1, writecount 0, refcount 35

(the refcount varies)

Anyone else seen this?  Did I do something wrong somewhere?  BTW, I do a 
"shutdown -r now" and when I reboot, fsck says the filesystems are all 
clean and don't need checking.
