unmounted ext2 dvd-ram file system acts as though it is still mounted

Description of problem:
When data is written to /mnt/cdrom and then deleted and the file system is
unmounted, the system reports that the file system is actually mounted and
displays old information.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Panasonic DVD-RAM LF-D311SC drive is mounted to /mnt/cdrom. Files are written
to the media and then deleted or the disk unmounted and reformatted.
Actual Results: While the disk is in an unmounted state, do an "ll" command
on /mnt/cdrom and the system seems to think the file system is actually mounted
and displays the old contents of the media. I can also write to /mnt/cdrom as
if it were mounted.
Expected Results: I would not expect the system to think that a file system
were mounted when in fact it is not.
Seems a little dangerous that the system may be giving me old data instead of
what may in fact be on the media that is unmounted.
Are you sure the filesystem doesn't get mounted twice or something?
Can you give me a shell script to reproduce the problem using loopback mounts?
File system was not mounted twice. Have since installed the latest Rawhide
kernel and the problem went away.
