What kernel version? Do the entries disappear on reboot?
This morning I had time to reboot, and I can now confirm that
rebooting cleared the dead entries. It sure looks like the
already-reported bug.
Thanks for the pointer--it never occurred to me to look for a kernel
bug because I don't know the underpinnings of the process (MTP
mountpoints?) and wasn't aware that a kernel process (module?) was
involved. Much appreciated.

It is not certain that it is a kernel bug, but when I booted into a 4.13 kernel, it was not present. There are a few other things in the initrd that might cause the problem, and it might be that a kernel change has revealed a bug elsewhere, such as a library. I am sure that kernel experts can figure it out.

Kind regards,
