I have to wait for the devs to solve and distribute it".

As I say in another posting, if you are relying on /etc/fstab and the
that parses it, you end up with the systemd semantics that maintain the
automatically restarting when something 'dies' so as to maintain a constant

The problem with unexpected (un-)mounts has absolutely nothing to do
with generator or fstab.

If you want different, take the entry out of fstab and write your own mount
that does what you want.

Which will have exactly the same problem. Do you ever test what you suggest?

This is not a problem with systemd.
It is doing what it supposed to.

Without leaving user choice of changing it and without even telling
user it will do it. So yes, it is not a bug - it is design decision.
Both design decision and how it is implemented is questionable and
contributes to attitude towards systemd.
