Not sure whether somebody was able to properly fix it or not. We (Chris and me) 
just ran into this issue and created a "fix" for the mount script.
The /etc/init.d/ file in line 24 is the reason for the problem. It 
complains about a wrong file descriptor here: exec 9>&0 </etc/fstab
I removed the 2 exec lines (line 24 and line 85) and added a " < /etc/fstab" 
at the end of line 84.

Hope it helps someone,
