This may or may not be a problem of my configuration, as I have "automount" installed for handling my storage media, but I think I have to look at the code and figure out what goes wrong (I'll post what goes wrong later - when I understand what actually happens).

Hi Nik, It's been a longtime since installing freebsd, at that time I 
installed a few different bsd's, after your post I started reading 
release notes and comparing other bsd's and it looks like freebsd is the 
way to go when the time comes that I stop testing debian/devuan and 
settle on a single distro, at that time ease of installation will not be 
a factor as it is now, also Slackware is another option to consider.

Thank you,
Jimmy Johnson
