Very good then.

It was not a paraphrase. It was a verbatim quote of the message from
mount. I don't know now what version of mount was in 0.93R6
pre-release-1. Sorry I forgot to report the version at the time.
However, at the time of the report the 0.93R6 pre-release disks were
available and there was a big push to get the system out. I assumed
the developer working on the base system would address the problem

Sounds good. Close it if you like, though. I have encountered
strange messages from mount from time to time in the past. Now that
my system is set up, I haven't had occasion to use mount manually much
at all. If I find the problem again, I'll resubmit the report.
