I have the same problem from time to time, though the circumstances
not completely clear, i.e. I work a lot with a pendrive and am always
very careful to mount/umount (via the Device Manager, and watching the
confirmation icon in the panel when unmounting). Nevertheless, every
once in a while the unmount seems to leave an undeleted mount point
behind, as you say. Furthermore, the mountpoint can't be deleted even by
root as the system seems to think it's still busy. Using 'fuser' shows
no active processes holding it open, but I've found that logging out
will enable root to delete the mountpoint.
I have no problem deleting as root the old mount point.
