I don't think we ever really determined what caused this. I was seeing
umount stubbornly refusing to umount once a target had been mounted
twice in the installer. Eduard put in a new losetup but I'm not sure
if he ever tested to see if there were stil zombies roaming around
after that (and whether that's actually related to this or not).

Try mount, unmount, remount, and see if it happens then.
