hello Gardon,

thank you for the tip. I had an eye on multipathd during my debugging,
but i ignored it, because i had installed it for years now. (and a
stop of the service still gave me the device busy stuff). i assume
that another rpm has enabled the multipath service and this was
fiddling around.

disabling the multipath stuff helped.

thank you for your hint again!

got my kudos .)
