You say "corruption", but then you say "filesystems are dirty".  Are you
actually finding files with bad contents?

Are you saying that if you "shutdown now", that the system shuts down
with the crash?  And that there are then files with bad contents?

crash dumps may not be enabled.  You could also enable ddb and do the
shutdown not using X, and then get a trace there.
