~$ sync

FWIW I add the line below in my /etc/crontab as a standard post-install
procedure:

* * * * * root /bin/sync

The kernel and journalling file system should take care of that
already, so periodic syncing might seem as superfluous. Nevertheless,
this increased the robustness of my filesystems by an order of
magnitude, *perceivedly*. :)
