Not Automounting [090918]

For some reason (probably because after a reboot it takes a few seconds too long for the USB drive to ``settle'') some of my drives that used to automount in older systems (presumably because they took longer to boot, thus giving time for the drive the ``settle'') no longer get mounted at boot time. Yet, when I run the command to mount all the automount drives after booting, they all get mounted:

$ sudo mount -a

I notice that in /etc/init.d/mountall.sh ext3 is not listed to be mounted. I tried adding the following to /etc/rc.local but that did not work either?

mount -a -t ext3

The relevant /etc/fstab entry is:

UUID=... /mnt/lactans ext3 defaults 0 0
