mount hangs with iso9660 on loop device

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [fr] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2smp i686)
I can' mount an iso9660 file on loop with my new custom kernel 2.4.2. I
can't even kill the mount command (I tried all signals). When I try to
reboot, the shutdown process hangs on "unmounting file systems". It worked
fine -and still does- with kernel 2.2.17-14. Did I forget something in
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -vt iso9660 -o loop[=/dev/loop0] iso /mnt
Actual Results: /var/log/messages says "Device not ready. Make sure there
is a disk in the drive"
An upgrade to 2.4.3 fixed the problem with loop device on my PC.
this is a very known problem with 2.4.2 kernels. It's probably fixed in 0.1.49
release in rawhide. It's definately fixed in Linus' 2.4.3. Basically you missed
the fix in your new custom kernel.
It's OK with 2.4.3. But does anyone know what's wrong in 2.4.2?
I can't reproduce this with 2.4.2-2, assuming it's fixed.
