problem with mount_ntfs-3g

I've already upgraded ntfs-3g to the latest version via ports.

ls /var/db/pkg | grep ntfs

when I mount the partition using this command:
mount_ntfs-3g -o ro /mnt/ad6s10 /media/g
everything is OK.

but when I add these to fstab and mount by
mount /media/g
. It tells me:
mount: /dev/ad6s10 : Operation not supported by device.

the item in fstab:
/dev/ad6s10 /media/g ntfs-3g	ro 0 0

So, I do this step:
mount -t ntfs-3g -o ro /dev/ad6s10 /media/g
It produces the same error.

For some test, I wrote a script named mount_ntfs-3g and placed it to
/usr/sbin. (yes, overwrite the original symbolic link.) And maked a
link under /sbin.

the script just like this:
echo $0

Then, I execute this command:
mount -t ntfs-3g -o ro /dev/ad6s10 /media/g
but is also says:
mount: /dev/ad6s10 : Operation not supported by device

Is this a bug of mount?
