It was already formatted and had useful contents, so I wasn't going to disturb
it. But in fact all the other partitions have the same problem in the
partitioner in the 10.0 installer. And they don't have the problem in an
ordinary Yast.

It's not at all clear to me why the mount point section would ever be grayed
out by the partitioner, especially since the blurb on the side says that
anything can be changed. In fact, nothing can be changed.
