Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

Having 2 USB drives with ntfs-3g filesystems mounted simultanously and
going into single user mode, one ntfs-3g filesystem would be unmounted 
and another ntfs-3g filesystem would stay mounted.

With a single ntfs-3g filesystem mounted, going into single user mode would
unmount that ntfs3g filesystem.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

manually un-mount the filesystem that stayed mounted after entering single
user mode worked.

   * What was the outcome of this action?
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
