I noticed in the graph of disk activity in GKrellM that there was some

It suddenly occurred to me that with GKrellM one can display a graph per
partition! So I activated graphs for each one in /dev/sda and found the
culprit: /dev/sda7.

What do I have there? Well, nothing:

Telcontar:~ # mount | grep sda7
/dev/sda7 on /other/test_a1 type reiserfs (rw,relatime,lazytime,
user_xattr,acl)
Telcontar:~ #

Something like

$ lsof /other/test_a1

when it is occurring? Or with the -/+r option to repeatedly probe for open
files?

Just a stab at it.

If there was something opened the "umount" would have failed. And as I
see the same activity in all the reiserfs mounts, except the one that is
in actual use, it has to be something "internal".
