[Haifux] Journalized filesystem question

Hello all,

I'm here with a friend and he just asked me a question that I know
many on this list can answer well:

"If power falls down and shuts off a box running a journalized
filesystem, is it safe to continue using it without first running a
disk integrity scan? In other words, is there any time during the life
of a disk running a journalized filesystem when the filesystem is
practically corrupted?"

Hope this is in the scope of the list :)

Thanks,
