I'm not sure I understand this - there are no duplicate entries in
fstab, and the /misc volume does not automount during the boot, or
didn't the last time I booted the machine.

The problem is that I still have two icons on the desktop for a single
mounted disk.


If I want to get rid of the label, how do I do that?  'man e2label'
doesn't say how to delete an existing label....
