Did you try
Code:
# umount -f /exports

?
# 3  
Try this before unmounting:

Code:
fuser -k -c /exports

That will kill any and all processes that have a file open or a current working directory in that file system.

Be careful you don't kill your own processes.

Also, make sure it's not NFS shared:

Code:
unshare /exports
