Okay I upgraded to 15.04 (vivid) and found a strange bug with fstab.

I have my terminal programs set up so that each one lists the various 
/dev/sda* hard drive capacities when started.  now fstab will not 
display the /dev/sda1 (main partition) entry but rather the output from 
/dev/disk/by-uuid/* instead.  Is there any way I can change fstab back 
to read the information from /dev/sda1?   Note that the shell file is 
designed to read off the value for /dev/sda1.

in fstab, the /dev/sda1 settings are set this way.  The "options" are 
errors=remount-ro.  The "dump" is  0 and the "pass" is  1. Ideas?
