Don't quite recall when this started behaving like this but Gnome's Nautilus has been reporting a sort of 'ghost' partition that's labeled the same as the regular one:


The partition resides on a RAID1. Clicking on the 'ghost' partition provides:

mount: /dev/md127p1 already mounted or /media/Music_Library busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/md127p1 is already mounted on /media/Music_Library

My fstab:

# / was on /dev/sdh2 during installation
UUID=15bb606e-54af-4fa3-8341-12824a404dae /                       ext4    errors=remount-ro   0       1
# /home was on /dev/sdh3 during installation

# swap was on /dev/sdh4 during installation

I'm running 12.04.

I had a similar problem with fstab entries using UUID.

I solved it by replacing it with my equivalent to /dev/md127p1.

Try changing your fstab accordingly, reboot and see if the problem goes away like mine did.
