I'm not sure what you meant about editting /etc/mtab since when I looked at
it on the test box it appears to get overwritten at boot time.  However,
your advice led me to poking around with /etc/mtab a bit more and I
discovered the problem.

On the test box /etc/mtab is a file, on the server box it's a symlink to
/proc/mounts.  With all the STFW I did, I guess I just wasn't searching for
the right thing.

Thanks for getting me headed in the right direction.
