I used to have a mount point directory /nt/e, where I would 
mount an NT file system, using smbclient.  Now it is in a
confused state where commands that expect it to be there
say it isn't (or something is wrong with it), but mkdir says
it already exists.  What is going on here? 

Here is the transcript: 

[root@allegheny /nt]# pwd
[root@allegheny /nt]# ls -la
ls: e: Input/output error
total 3
drwxrwxr-x   5 root     root         1024 May 31 09:46 .
drwxr-xr-x  41 root     root         1024 Mar  1 10:51 ..
drwxrwxr-x   2 root     root         1024 Feb 14 14:21 c
drwxrwxr-x   1 root     root          512 May 23 10:24 e2
[root@allegheny /nt]# mkdir e
mkdir: cannot make directory `e': File exists
[root@allegheny /nt]# rmdir e
rmdir: e: No such file or directory
[root@allegheny /nt]# rm e
rm: cannot remove `e': Input/output error
[root@allegheny /nt]# rm -fr e
rm: cannot remove `e': Input/output error
[root@allegheny /nt]#
