Is it a regular file or a symlink? IIRC on ubuntu /etc/mtab is symlink
to ../proc/self/mounts. As a workaround, if it's a file, you can delete it
and create the symlink manually.

It could be that the code that recreates /etc/mtab needs improvement. But
IMHO when a user deletes a system file needed to run properly, then the
system pretty much becomes unsupported.
