Description of problem:
if the device name is long then the diskcheck script produces
a cryptic error message.  This appears to be related to parsing
the output of the df command - which for a long device name will
produce one entry split across two lines.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount --bind /home/odonnell/lib/wnr /var/ftp/pub/wnr/lib/wnr

Actual Results:  Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/etc/cron.hourly/diskcheck", line 65, in ?
    (volume, total, used, avail, pct, mountpt) = string.split(line)
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size
