If I comment out the line, the drives mount properly as /media/hdc etc.
However, even if I add users to the options, I then get an error about
a bad file system "SUBFS", so there's definitely something wrong with
the fstab lines that were created in the 64 bit system. There are no
corresponding lines in the 32 bit one.

So the questions remain, why are those lines added to the 64 bit version
and why are they so defective?
