    Stephen, I also did hit it. In 2.1.126. Couldn't reproduce it yet. I've
    poked in /dev/kmem and it turned out that ->s_root->d_count was 2 without
    any obvious holders. So it sounds like dentry leak. And no, I don't know
    how I got there. _Not_ the way that Chris described, that's for sure.
