You can short-stop a bug that will show up, eventually, if you care to. The
S35mountall.sh script should check that it's on an OS that has some concept
of devpts, usbfs, usbdevfs, etc, before actually trying to mount them...
(or maybe it already does, and I missed it, in which case I'll go hide in a
corner over here).
