I've experienced data loss in the way yo describe on a test-machine
using btrfs. After changing to XFS (which I'm using exclusively on my
other machines) I didn't encounter a single data loss, even after some
severe crashes induced by sudden power loss.

Thus, I suspect btrfs to play an important role here.
