Sort of worked this one out: the problem was that there were 2 lists of
mount in registry:
- one "system" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\...

The solution was to delete all my mounts (either by umount either by
deleting apropriate registry keys) and remounting with --system.
So my little problem is gone. But: wouldn't be more appropriate (don't

that are defined by a user would be available via sshd logins.
