Ok, so I got to the machine, rebooted into knoppix,
on all the partitionas, and voila, everything works. I can even even
use the extended attributes now, and everything still works!
So to sum up, noattrs was NOT enough. Despite using noattrs, some
attrs were still being enforced (in particular, symlinks were being
funny!) This might be another bug, unrelated to the "random crap in
attrs when there shouldn't be" bug.
