The suggestion sounds like a workaround rather than a fix. ext3 will usually
mount relatively quickly with a journal replay after improper unmounting, and
the tune2fs suggestion just stops it forcing an fsck after 30 or so mounts.
The combination should give you reasonably fast, reliable reboots, but is
unlikely to fix the underlying problem with the unmount. I don't know what
causes the problem.
