[stgt] can't force-remove targets

Sometimes (90% of cases), I can't force-remove targets (needed i.e. when 
I want to update tgtd).

tgtd is running 19 targets, mostly in use, on a 64 bit system.

These are tgtadm commands I use to remove the targets:

tgtadm --op update --mode sys --name State -v offline

# This target is removed just fine
tgtadm --op unbind --mode target --tid 11 -I ALL
tgtadm --op delete --mode conn --tid 11 --sid 14 --cid 0
tgtadm --mode target --op delete --tid=11

# This target is removed fine
tgtadm --mode target --op delete --tid=6

# This target fails
tgtadm --op delete --mode conn --tid 16 --sid 11 --cid 0
tgtadm --mode target --op delete --tid=16
tgtadm: this target unit is still active

(Command: tgtadm --mode target --op delete --tid=16
exited with code: 22.)

Any idea why this happens? Currently, with 0.9.6, but happened also at 
least with 0.9.4 and 0.9.5, and perhaps earlier.

Running "tgtadm --op delete --mode conn --tid 16 --sid 11 --cid 0" 
manually, multiple times later does not remove the connection.
