IMHO, this isn't a bug. It's the way Unix has always worked. You can delete
any file that's open, whether it's being viewed with less, or mounted as a
loopback filesystem. The kernel will hang onto the resources until it's
closed. The only bug is in fuser, which doesn't tell you that a file is in
use as a loopback filesystem (or at least, it didn't last time I checked).
