LXC container filesystem commit/caching issue

Hello, I've another question about PVE. Used to try LXC containers, I noticed an issue with filesystem commit I think (or maybe caching?)...
If I modify a file in the container, then instantly I reboot, after logging in I found the previus version of the file!
PVE host filesystem is ext4 on a plain GPT partition (might be I'll migrate to BTRFS), container filesystem is ext4 too, on LVM thin.

I DO NOT have this issue on VMs (always ext4 on the same LVM thin pool).
