I said half-resolved, as I found a line with /dev/sdh1 in /etc/mtab.
Removing it solved the problem, but remains the question:
why /etc/mtab was not updated?
What kind of system are you using ?
In current versions of Debian, /etc/mtab should be a symlink to
/proc/mounts. As anything in /proc, this not a real file but an
interface with the kernel. It should always be up to date and userland
should not be able to write it.
