showmount -a shows directories that aren't there anymore

So, I made directories a while back for documentation purposes ... I removed all of that stuff after I was done.

Yesterday, after many reboots, it still shows them. The only VALID directory is: /NFS/902_trk2.

/etc/exports only has one entry; there are no other files like /etc/export* ...

[root@server ~]# showmount -d
Directories on server:

[root@server ~]# showmount -e
Export list for server:

[root@server ~]# cat /etc/exports
The same showmount results happen from the client side as well.

Why is this? I don't think I should be able to query old directories with that command ...

Thoughts? Thanks!
