FWIW, if you have a /tmp entry in your fstab you don't need to mask
tmp.mount (the fstab takes precedence). The only time you need to maks
tmp.mount is if you don't want a partition mounted on /tmp at all.

Sounds like a bug, but haven't tried reproducing yet. Could you send
your fstab for the record?
