I mean that if you have inetd running as a service and
then you run bash and delete mounts, the deleted mounts still 
show up in the output of mount in that bash session until you 
close down both that bash session and inetd. 
The next time any cygwin stuff starts all is OK.

This hasn't happened to me for a while (I haven't changed any 
mounts for a while), so I will try to reproduce it.
