mount command doesn't report correctly shared folder.

I use VirtualBox-4.1.6. My host OS is Windows XP 64, my guest os is mageia 2 64 bits.

I have several shared folders in my virtual machine. When I enter 'mount', the mount command lists all the mounted media.

For example, I've got a MYUSER shared folder pointing to c:\

Under linux, I mounted the shared folder:

mount -t vboxsf MYUSER /media/MYUSER

Now, if I enter 'mount', I've got:

none on /media/sf_MYUSER type vboxsf (rw,nodev,relatime)

It should report:

MYUSER on /media/sh_MYUSER type vboxsf (rw,nodec,relatime)

This doesn't happen with an Ubuntu 12.04 guest (admittedly tested with the development version of the Additions, but I don't think that code has changed recently). I will give Mageia 2 a shot some time - perhaps though you could test with a few other guests too?
