Do you have any keywords beside fstab and mount that I can search for? There are too may hits in the archive on either of these words.

I don't see any mention of this kind of different behaviour or split in fstab in any od the fstab documentation. Is it documented anywhere ele?

I'll try your suggestion and move the line higher up in fstab this evening.

Thanks,
Steve
