this thread is about a idiotic change in the behavior of mount
shortly before release F15 and i do not speak only about locate

COREUTILS have to be fixed that there output is the same
as before the change or such a change has to be reverted

but you can fix "df" for me if you have the time and knowledge
in a way that i get NOT a mail everytime a cronjob calls it
without root-permissions about access denied for /var/named/chroot/

> evolution entails changes for the users

this is a dumb argumentation as long coreutils under "/bin/" are
broken because they are outside the users reach to do anything
