#181 Error creating Mount Point in WebGUI

NAS4free version: - Shigawire (revision 972)
Platform: x64-embedded on AMD Athlon(tm) II Neo N36L Dual-Core Processor (HP Microserver, 8GB RAM).

Trying to create a Mount Point for a USB HD using the WebGUI (Disk|Mount Point) gives the error:
"The disk/partition is already configured."

The disk is seen correctly in Disk|Management and can be formatted correctly in Disk|Format (UFS GPT and soft updates).

The disk can be mounted a used correctly if mounted using the CLI (mount /dev/da2p1 /mnt/HDUSB)

I tried with 3 different disks but the behavior is always the same.

    EDIT: maybe I found the problem. The GUI seems to verify if the device path (ie: /dev/da1p1) is already used by another mount point. If so => error "The disk/partition is already configured."

    Update: on the other hand is not possible to mount 2 different drives on the same mount point (not at the same time of course) because the mount command is not using the "/dev/daXpY" syntax but the "/dev/ufsid/xxx" syntax.

    This is kinda problematic because I want to do a backup to 2 different external HD using a "toaster" (example: http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/crsu2.jpg) and at the moment the only solution is to delete and recreate the mount point at every swap.
