/dev/sdb1 is apparently in use by the system; will not make a
filesystem here!

??? Neither fuser, nor lsof, nor searches for anything else reveal
why /dev/sdb1 could be "in use".  OK, lets try to force the issue

# mke2fs -F -j /dev/sdb1
mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
/dev/sdb1 is apparently in use by the system; mke2fs forced anyway.
/dev/sdb1: Device or resource busy while setting up superblock
