That should not be a problem, you can happily mount stuff over other
stuff (the other stuff will be invisible then and lead to confusion
between df and du, but apart from that, it’s fine).
Could it maybe be possible that the kernel somehow does not
recognize /dev/ad0s1 as a block device? If I try to mount
"/var/log/syslog", mount appears to set up a loop device
automatically, which then leads to some confusion as mount.ntfs
complains that there is no NTFS header there. Maybe something similar
is happening here?
