Hey Pete:

Yea, that happens to me as well.  It seems to happen
for the 'auto' detect of fs's.  I tried the auto for
my cdrom, but whenever I would mount a hsfs, or a
rrfs, I would get some weird tweekiness.  So, I just
specify the fs.  Not that I know how to fix it, I am
just kinda saying, yea, that happens to me too.
