does anyone know why I might get the following output on a partition that is
definitely not mounted..

darren at hepburn ~ $ sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sda1
e2fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
e2fsck: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1
Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?

.. how do I tell what (if anything really is) is using it?
