Perhaps there's an open file on the mounted partition? You might try
using lsof and fuser to diagnose this.

I used v26 for a long time as well and am currently using v31. Neither
of them has exhibited the behavior you're reporting.

I might try upgrading to v33 soon but probably not for a couple of
weeks. Good luck in diagnosing the problem though. You might want to
start a new thread so this one doesn't get convoluted with two very
different topics.
