Known issue.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-07-19 16:13:12 EDT
they're not stray, they get appeneded when a label of that name already exists.
 There was a bug that would see the existing / label on a partition that was
going to be formatted, so the label got set to /1.  next install it would be /
again.  This is fixed.
