msdos doesn't exist in -current (it has been renamed to msdosfs), so
"mount -t msdos ..." should just print a message about mount_msdos
not being found. Perhaps you have an old version of mount_msdos. It
might not work, since the mount family is one of the main areas where
-current breaks binary compatibility. Similarly for the msdos module,
except breakage of binary compatibility is normal for all modules.
Getting a different result the second time (after loading a module)
looks more like a problem with the module than with the mount program.
