I do think this is a bug new in v33

as described below any shutdown/reboot, whether from commandline or gui, means that a fsck of the card reports it was not cleanly unmounted.

I ran 

lsof | grep /media/card 

to show no open files - but this is too regular (100% reproducible) and never happened after a clean shutdown on v26. In any case the system should force a close of any unopen files and an umount before it shuts down.
