'mount' reports what it sees in /etc/mtab and this file was not
updated if this file system:

> /dev/md2 on / type ext3 (rw)

is failing and got remounted ro.  'cat /proc/mounts' will show what
kernel thinks about that.  These two pictures are usually close but
not the same.

BTW - if /etc/mtab is writable you can manipulate it content, hence
also what 'mount' reports, using -f option to 'mount'.  This is
often done in a startup.
