If you mount file systems while chrooted (e.g. using the i386 upgrade
install procedure), the kernel mount table includes false "mounted-on"
pathnames which are the chrooted pathnames.
I'm not sure this is something worth fixing, or even easily fixable, but
it confused me so I figured I'd at least report it.
run an i386 upgrade install, type 'df' at one of the prompts.
