Clearly an easy work around in that case then but personally
I would expect a mount to a directory already in use by another
mount point to fail. Taking even further a mount to a directory
that is not actually empty should fail. IIRC this is how solaris
behaves but its been a while.
Checking for an empty target directory certainly makes sence to
me is there some case where it would be desirable to allow this
to happen? If so maybe a force flag should created without which
a mount to a none empty dir would fail. Either way allowing
multiple mounts to the same location is bound to cause all manor
of confusion and should be prevented.
