If you reboot your machine by typing 'reboot' you don't run the
various rc.d scripts to turn off any services you have running. If a
process has an open file descriptor onto the root FS and doesn't play
ball with the usual sync and dismount procedure, it could have the
results you observe.
Try using the command:
# shutdown -r now
to get a clean shutdown and reboot.
