Summary0008773: stale fuse-overlayfs processes leftover from podman
DescriptionOn there are many idle fuse-overlayfs processes apparently leftover from podman.

Running `ps aux | grep fuse-overlayfs | wc -l` resulted in 458 items.

Podman should be removing these mounts when a container shuts down, but there is a known bug that prevents this under some (unknown) circumstances.


We may need to implement our own cleanup of these on a cron.
TagsNo tags attached.

I've figured out a command to clean these up:
`podman unshare umount $(podman unshare mount | grep fuse | grep -v connections | cut -d' ' -f3)`

Added a cronjob on user `container-worker` that runs the aforementioned command to remove stale fuse mounts at 05:00 every day. It has been running for a few days and appears to be working as intended.
