Thank you very much.
Before filing a bug report, I wanted to make sure what I saw was correct.
The webpage is listed here . After checking the mount (8) man page, I
have seen the similar observation as you. I would have thought that the
command would have given the output of completion but it returned this
command was not found. I fortunately reinstalled Gentoo Linux in my
Desktop and ran into this few weeks ago.
I just wanted to make sure it's not only on my end as I didn't see any
reports of it in the bug tracker.
Oh, and your PS, I'm sorry. I was using the Gmail's native browser mail. :)
