GLib bug on GitLab (https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/glib/issues/1271
"fstab binds appear as mounts (x-gvfs-hide is being ignored)")

shows two commits, the second of which 
(and the bug itself) appear to have been fixed in GLib version 2.59.0
(only debian Experimental has a version that meets/exceeds this version)

416 Overview of changes in GLib 2.59.0
431 * Hide bind mounts from GIO mount listings. (#1271)
490 * Bugs fixed:
503  - #1271 fstab binds appear as mounts (x-gvfs-hide is being ignored)
594  - !366 gunixmounts: Mark mounts as system internal instead of filtering out

(!365 gunixmounts: Filter out mounts with device path that was repeated
was also listed as a commit for #1271, and as merged, but I don't see it
listed anywhere - don't know if that was an oversight and it was fixed,
or got un-merged. 

I assume that if one wanted to try out the version in Experimental (2.60.3-1),
that one would have to grab all GLib packages that in testing/sid are at version
2.58.3-1 (three on my system - libglib2.0-0, -bin, -data) 
(and hope that none of the higher versions conflicts with anything...)
