[sheepdog-users] wiped out the fs cleaning sheepdog directory

Hi, I often recreate my testing cluster.
To be sure to start from a clear point, I usually empty the sheepdog
working directory
  rm -r /mnt/sheepdog/*

I did that several times with no strange things happening.
Yesterday evening, after giving this command, I got a message like
'/dev/ì is busy.
Then I wan't able to run any command: 'command not found'.

I've been looking at my previous 'rm' to be sure there was not an extra '.' like
  rm -r /mnt/sheepdog/.*
because I know that this will erase the whole filesystem.
Or I didn't watch well, or there was no dot.

What do you think about?
