I think I'd be doing some back searching in the logs for clues. Maybe you
had a power glitch that rebooted the machine and they weren't ready at
mount time? Thats not even a WAG, let alone a SWAG though. I think I'd
reboot from cold, and see if that fixes it. I don't know of anything that
would cause them to spontainiously unmount though. Mount doesn't to my
knowledge have a timeout option but a flakey psu or a power glitch can do
black magic things occasionally. One of the reasons I have a ups on
"There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty:
soap, ballot, jury, and ammo. Please use in that order."
