==== SOLVED ! ! ! ====

Hi all,

I just found out that
vnamespace -e [namespace of context <xid>] umount /your/lvm/volume
must be performed TWO times in each namespace:

-with /your/lvm/volume as the mountpoint, i.e /vservers/vs01
-with /your/lvm/volume as the lvm device, i.e /dev/volume1/vs01

Then I have to umount BOTH mountpoint and lvm device on the host
system for the lvremove command to work.

Again, thank you so much for your help and for your work on the vserver project!

Best regards,

Mehdi Bennani
