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.
on my laptop, mtab is actually a link to ../proc/self/mounts
but on my desktop, it is a file, God knows why.
