Jon, Yes I did see Andre's answer, and my response still stands true.
It's not because there EXISTS a backslash in the fstab file (there isn't),
it's because you TYPED a backslash during the MSYS post-install, which
causes the exact symptoms you describe ... the backslash never makes it into
the fstab file as its removed (and not replaced with a forwardslash), so you
see a fstab with a missing slash as the symptoms.
