Ah, I knew there was something else. :-( Let's see...

root@dragon:/tmp>mount -o loop foo 1
root@dragon:/tmp>mount -o loop foo2 2
root@dragon:/tmp>grep loop /proc/mounts 
/dev/loop0 /tmp/1 ext2 rw 0 0
/dev/loop1 /tmp/2 ext2 rw 0 0
root@dragon:/tmp>grep loop /etc/mtab   
/tmp/foo /tmp/1 ext2 rw,loop=/dev/loop0 0 0
/tmp/foo2 /tmp/2 ext2 rw,loop=/dev/loop1 0 0
