textmount/binmount issue

This is my current mount table:

 pc00626> mount -m
mount -f -s -b "c:/MyStuff/cygwin/bin" "/usr/bin"
mount -f -s -b "c:/MyStuff/cygwin/lib" "/usr/lib"
mount -f -s -b "c:/MyStuff/cygwin" "/"
mount -f -s -t -E "u:" "/u"
mount -s -b --change-cygdrive-prefix "/"

Note that /u is mounted textmode while the rest is binary.  However,
if I access files on /u they are binmode as well.  But when I 
change the mode of the drive prefix to text then /u is also text.
Seems like prefix is overwriting the explicit setting for /u.  If
the drive prefix is something else but /u is still there then /u
is not affected by the prefix settings.  Is this intended behavior?
