I see a handful of this type of notification not uncommonly on boot-up,
and I suspect it's from this cause, for the simple reason that most of
my shutdowns are unclean; specifically, most of my shutdowns are due to
power loss. I don't tend to shut the machine down on purpose very often.

I don't find it surprising that orphaned inodes happen when the
filesystem didn't get a chance to clean up in the normal course of
