automount: helper fails because drive is already mounted?

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – My fstab configuration has always worked, but recently (and somewhat out of the blue,) my Ubuntu has started to attempt to mount my usb hard-drive twice. The error is Unable to mount cloud Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: according to mtab, /dev/sde1 is already mounted on /media/cloud mount failed Where 'Cloud' is the name of my usb hard-drive. For information my fstab is linked to uuids, and included below: # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc pr (HowTos)
