JFFS2 messages at shutdown

I am using the MTD/JFFS2 contained in kernel 2.4.20 on a board with a 
FLASH configuration that is essentially the AMD NETSC520 evaluation 
board, i.e. two AM29LV641 chips on a 32 bit bus.  The erase block size 
for the two chips together is 128KB.  I have two JFFS2 partitions, each 
having 1024KB, so I meet the 5 erase blocks minimum requirement. 
Everything seems to be working OK, and has been for quite some time. 
However, there does seem to be a discrepancy between what df reports on 
the jffs2 partitions and what the actual files sizes stored there are. 
Perhaps this has been fixed in a later version?

The other question I have is whether or not to worry about these
messages, which are displayed while INIT is running the shutdown script:

jffs2: No clean _or_ dirty blocks to GC from! Where are they all?
jffs2: Couldn't find erase block to garbage collect!
