Yes; a message flew by on the lists a while ago about something
similar.  When you "mount -a", it mounts _all_ the filesystems again;
the only reason it doesn't mount / and /usr twice is that you can't
mount a given block device more than once.  You'll get similar multiple
mounts with NFS, for example...which is a problem for me, setting up a
diskless environment.  I'm probably about to hack something into mount
to work around it....
