Yes, I run data=journal, I am sorry I not mentioned it first!
(I think I did this in initial bug report, but to this day
bugzilla is not working :/ )

# grep /var /proc/mounts
/dev/mapper/sredniczarny-var /var ext4 rw,relatime,user_xattr,acl,commit=120,barrier=1,nodelalloc,data=journal 0 0
#

It is somehow important I think, for two reasons
1) I run on laptop, so risk of power loss is high
2) I use data=journal for having higher data integrity / reliability,
and having it opossing effect (by not only not possibly providing
this reliability, but also compromising metadata and filesystem structure
integrity) is somehow not anyone would want (especially when using data=journal).
