Just flashing without re-running "firstboot" in failsafe will leave the 
partition and all the files on it that were there before you flashed 
(the jffs partition) or dirt like that (If I remember correctly).

Because of the fact that you reflashed with a stock linksys kernel 
(smaller than openwrt), well openwrt might have detected that partition 
and you probably still have those files left on the jffs partition (the 
old one).

Usually, if it's the first time you flash with openwrt, it will run 
firstboot by itself on the first boot you do (won't tell you it's doing 

So basically I think one rule we can follow is to always go into 
failsafe and run "firstboot" everytime you flash. In THEORY you could 
flash to a newer openwrt without removing everything but I'd recommend 
against :)
