While Scott is on Peppermint, the original submitter (me) and probably
others who chimed in are on real vanilla Debian.  The bug reproduces (as on
attached screenshot) on fully up-to-date unstable, on a box installed just
yesterday from d-i daily image, on a Debian conference, by a DD, with two
other DDs debugging bootloader problems, with not a single package not in
our archive.

Besides the expected "Home" and "File System" I get two extra entries:
* "Filesystem root" (/, redundant with "File System")
* "boot" (/boot)
both of which are on a non-removable disk.

New installs don't have /proc in their fstabs, but old do -- and I just
added such an entry to mine, and indeed it did show up.

This box's fstab at the time of screenshot is:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/mmcblk2p2 during installation
UUID=a7cd0bc6-7f6f-44bb-9379-21e561e5afaa /               btrfs   noatime         0       0
# /boot was on /dev/mmcblk2p1 during installation
UUID=c523e382-26a4-4ab9-8efe-a65e4eef6918 /boot           ext4    noatime         0       2
# swap was on /dev/mmcblk2p5 during installation
UUID=1d9d31be-dc9a-47ae-a9a1-ec3f99bff94d none            swap    sw              0       0
proc	/proc	proc	defaults
(all lines but the last were generated by d-i)

This box's internal disk is eMMC, the one in original report had regular SATA.

You just closed a bug as "not for Debian" for a single commenter using a
derivative -- most of which don't even modify core packages such as glib --
without even asking the original reporter nor two other folks who also
confirmed.  Alas, the BTS still has the unfortunate flaw of not sending new
mails to the submitter unless explicitly subscribed, thus you'd need CCs
when asking if the bug still reproduces.  Unless the reporter subscribed
(like I just did), then they'll get two or more copies...

Hack on!
