It did not recognize an installation of FreeBSD either.

This time, with an ATI graphics card instead of NVidia, resolution was OK.

This again was a different "bug": As the "mount" man page does not provide a list
of supported filesystem names, I just tried "-t ext2" and got the misleading
error message above. It should have said something like "unknown file system".
This time, with the option "-t ext2fs", it was able to mount ext2, ext3, and
even ext4, this read-only.

Still no clue why ntfs-3g has problems reading another NTFS bitmap again.
