Sorry, please disregard my previous statement.
It was something locally unusual. May be accidental reboot helped, or... I
don't know. but I tried to change that line back and forth, and it wasn't
changing mount output, but now, all of a sudden, it works.

Could be that I've had a shell windows opened accidentally.
I just haven't used shell much in the past 2 years, and now I noticed i have
same slowdown issue on opening bash console. I gonna dig the mail archive back
to find a solution.
