lsof does show this:
$ mkdir /scratch/foo
$ cd /scratch/foo
$ lsof +D /scratch/foo
COMMAND  PID   USER   FD   TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF   NODE NAME
bash    3060 x01024  cwd    DIR  253,4     4096 303105 /scratch/foo
lsof    4606 x01024  cwd    DIR  253,4     4096 303105 /scratch/foo
lsof    4607 x01024  cwd    DIR  253,4     4096 303105 /scratch/foo

This is on fedora 13 with an ext3 FS, but it also true for RHEL4 and 5.

Things work fine until I try to migrate the volume containing our home dir (all others work as expected) The umount for that volume fails and depending on the active config, the node reboots itself (self_fence=1) or it simply fails and get's disabled.
