The line is broken, since it had reached the end of line. It just wrapped
the rest of the line into the next line. I don't think it's the actual
output from fusefs. Here's an interesting thing though:

# cat /var/log/messages
...
Aug  8 23:37:10 homedesktop root: /etc/rc: INFO: checkyesno:
ntfsmount_enable is set to YES.
Aug  8 23:37:10 homedesktop root: /etc/rc: INFO: run_rc_command: _doit:
/usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g  /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/windows -o locale=en_US.UTF-8
Aug  8 23:37:11 homedesktop ntfs-3g[923]: Version 1.710
Aug  8 23:37:11 homedesktop ntfs-3g[923]: Mounted /dev/ad0s1 (Read-Write,
label "", NTFS 3.0)
Aug  8 23:37:11 homedesktop ntfs-3g[923]: Cmdline options:
locale=en_US.UTF-8
Aug  8 23:37:11 homedesktop ntfs-3g[923]: Mount options:
noatime,silent,allow_other,fsname=/dev/ad0s1
...

So it seems the mount process was successful?! Indeed, /dev/fuse0 was
created as well...
Then why do I see the following message when the system boots?
-----
fuse: failed to exec mount program: No such file or directory
-----

I'm not sure if this is something to be worried about or not, but there are
two spaces between "ntfs-3f" and "/dev/ad0s1" when the command runs. I have
set up the startup script as mentioned before, so I'm not sure what's
happening here as well...

Thanks
