mount: /target/media/mirror is busy

Hello everyone,

I'm running FAI 3.4.7 to install a virtual machine from an .iso. I 
specified 'reboot' in FAI_FLAGS, but when the system is ready to reboot, 
I get an error:

mount: /target/media/mirror is busy

FAI then waits for an enter to reboot... I really need FAI to reboot on 
its own; how to do this?

I've disabled all scripts and all tests (by renaming the directories), 
so I'm positive it's not a bug in one of the scripts... What would cause 
FAI to keep the mount busy? Maybe this is a known bug?

With kind regards,
