Because of a bug present in Linus tree. Try this patch:

--- linux.orig/drivers/block/rd.c Mon Nov 20 02:07:47 2000
+++ linux/drivers/block/rd.c Mon Nov 20 04:03:42 2000

done:
if (infile.f_op->release)
infile.f_op->release(inode, &infile);
+ blkdev_put(out_inode->i_bdev, BDEV_FILE);
set_fs(fs);
return;
free_inodes: /* free inodes on error */
BTW, it's fixed in -ac patches.
