F12 Boot error message re mount of loop device



Maybe I'm doing something wrong, so I'm asking here first. If no-one
points out a better way, I'll file a bug report.
Also I'd appreciate guidance where best to file it.

During boot I want to mount an iso9660 file as a loop device. The iso
file is on a ext3 partition labelled HUGE_01 which is mounted at
/mnt/huge.

FILE = /mnt/huge/get/iso/Fedora-12-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-i386-DVD.iso
MOUNTPOINT = /mnt/Fedora-12-i386-DVD.

The mount succeeds. However during boot I get this unnecessary failure message:

Mounting local filesystems: [ OK ]
[snip]
Mounting other filesystems:  mount: according to mtab
/mnt/huge/get/iso/Fedora-12-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-i386-DVD.iso is already
mounted on /mnt/Fedora-12-i386-DVD as loop  [ FAILED ]

>From a user perspective, this error message seems equivalent to:
"Because we tried unnecessarily to mount this device a second time
after it had already mounted successfully, we now report to you that
the second attempt failed."

So a failure is reported where no failure occurred. Worse, a failure
is reported for the reason that it already succeeded. This seems
illogical and unnecessary. Unless I'm doing somethin' stoopid.
Relevant details are below.

Thanks,
David
