I believe this if only pertinent to the 1.0.x versions. It was fixed in the 1.1 version, released over four years ago.
That said, ext3 in its default data=order mode, and also in its data=journal mode, makes stonger guarantees about the consistency of the data after an unplanned shutdown. Of the Linux journalled filesystems, I believe that only ext3 and reiserfs even give you the option of these higher levels of guarantee.
But I believe that XFS is currently no worse than any other metadata only journalling filesystem out there, which means most of them.
