There was a bug in ext3 which was fixed around about the 2.4.9
timeframe. I don't know if the fix is present in that
particular Red Hat kernel. It was fixed in ext3 0.9.8. The
ext3 version number is displayed when you mount a filesystem.

The 0.9.8 changelog says:

- Fix an NFS oops when doing a local delete on an active, nfs-exported

I never observed this bug - I think the fix came from Ted T'so. I
do not know whether the bug manifested itself as "busy inodes
after unmount". Perhaps Ted or Stephen can comment?
