To reproduce the issue and test the fix I reseted the board in a loop.
For this I added 'reset' to /env/bin/init. With 'reset" in /env/bin/init I
saw the issue after 1 - 2 Minutes.
Also I have done 1000 power cuts and resets without any error in our 
test rack.

power cut:
1. start barebox to prompt
2. power cut

soft reset:
1. start barebox to prompt
2. reset
