I'm sorry to say that today when I tried it again, there was no such
bug.  But that's not to say that it did happen once.  Here's the
script I used to do the mounting/unmounting.  Anyways thanks for
folks' concerned e-mails.  I will try to find an different bug to make
it up to you :-)

case $1 in -u) umount /debian/home /debian/var /debian/usr /debian; exit;; esac
O="-o ro"
mount $O /dev/hdb9  /debian
mount $O /dev/hdb10 /debian/home
mount $O /dev/hdb11 /debian/var
mount $O /dev/hdb12 /debian/usr
