Tried stat on the directory, see the behavior. If I make hdc be a
non-supermount drive then all is well, hdd and fd0 work with supermount.
Now, hdc is a brand new reader, so I replaced with a reader that is about 1
yr old, and get the exact same behavior.
Is supermount just broken with these drives? Is there any place I should
report this behavior to?
