When using a Raspberry Pi to program an atmega2560 using linuxgpio and you do not have the permission to access /sys/class/gpio/gpioX/direction it would leave the gpio pin exported. The only way to unexport the pin would be to reboot the Rasbperry Pi.

The problem lies in the function linuxgpio_open, change line 280 from:
if (r < 0)
return r;

if (r < 0) {
return r;
