I wasn't sure what you meant at first, but Russ' messages made me think
maybe I do. Do you just mean the fileserver logging ignored partitions
(and mentioning AlwaysAttach if appropriate) on startup?
IIRC, as Russ mentions, that code right now is organized a bit awkwardly
for that in that it goes through the list of partitions in multiple
passes. But I'll take a look probably tomorrow.
