This is a shot in the dark, but might be of use.Your mount script was
racing with the automounter -- and perhaps winning always/most of the
time. The startup sequence and the automounter have changed
*radically* in 12.1.0 with the introduction of systemd.

It probably doesn't exist anymore _and_ you are racing with some init
script from the new, wild and wooly systemd world.

The "user removable device" automounter mountpoints are now under
/run/ (I think /run/user/<username>/media or somesuch).
