It sure would be something if I could actually help, even though I am not 
optimistic.  But if you used /media/d/www as a mount point, I would bet that 
is the problem.  Mounting with /media has been a nightmare for me for years 
until I recently found the solution from the List.  My guess is that you did 
not do that, but if you did, and it is a new method of mounting, it is 
probably your problem.  Forgive the presumption.
