UBIFS error: replay_log_leb: first log node at LEB 3:0 is not CS node

I'm getting a UBIFS Corruption during a power failure with a fail
signature that I believe is different from what has been seen in the
When I flash a new UBI image onto my device and boot it for the first
time everything comes up as expected. However if I force a power
failure before any major file writes occur the device will crash when
UBIFS attempts to recover during the next reboot. If I force a sync
command before the power failure I am able to successfully avert the
recovery failure. I worry that this indicates something ugly is going
on that I can't detect.

To get more debug messages I have enabled UBIFS debugging and enabled
the recovery and mount messages by booting with
""ubifs.debug_msgs=6144 ignore_loglevel" kernel parameters

Below is a snippet of the debug messages:

Does anyone have any suggestions?
