When I give "mount" at the command line, everything looks just fine :

/dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/sdb1 on /usr/local/pgsql type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=writeback)
/dev/sda3 on /usr/local/pgsql/wal type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)

It looks like the labels are not really used, just the mount-points. Or
could this cause other problems I am not aware of? Everything seems to be
working just fine, for several months now...
