Bug Description

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Initial configuration: Intel 32-bit machine with up-to-date Gutsy.
2. Upgrade to Hardy release (no alphas, betas or release candidates installed).
3, Check mounted volumes.

EXPECTED OUTCOME:
Two volumes mounted, as in Gutsy.

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
a. NTFS partition mounted.
b. VFAT partition not mounted.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
After the upgrade /etc/fstab was as follows:

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    # /dev/hda3 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
    UUID=e891ea48-fa1b-456c-b5a2-1a0a1f00aaa3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    # /dev/hda1 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
    UUID=B0042B18042AE158 /media/hda1 ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 2
    # /dev/hda2 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
    UUID=95d7c42e-de7c-4832-a220-87cafdeeacae none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/hda4 /media/hda4 vfat defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 2
    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

The machine on which I am experiencing this problem has gone through a number of upgrades (from Dapper all the way to Hardy without installing). As you can see, most /dev/hd* entries got converted to UUID-style entries when upgrading to Edgy. All, expect hda4.

KNOWN WORKAROUND:
Manually editing /etc/fstab and changing /dev/hda4 into /dev/sda4 solves the problem.

Confirming since an effective workaround is provided.

I was curious if you upgraded that machine from hardy to a later release and were able to verify that problem then.

This particular machine has been further upgraded with every new release. It is currently running Karmic Koala. No problems with the partitions during any of these updates.
