My roofs is on nand; the rootfs unmounts cleanly, but not the uSD based partition that I automount on /media/card

I don't think this can explain it, but to check I did this:-

1. I shutdown the neo and fsck the uSD in a laptop 
2. this reports a filesystem that was not unmounted properly - same as I get on the Neo
3 I put the card back in the neo and start up and fsck - I have a clean filesystem on the uSD for the first time after a shutdown/reboot!

I think this is clear evidence of an unclean shutdown and it only happens since I upgrade to v33  - I don't think there is any hardware issue here.
