I pressed "Enter" prematurely, before the description was written, so it is here:

For the first time I tried grub-customizer by calling it from a root prompt.  I looked around, made a small edit, and saved.  Afterward, I tried to mount a partion (I was trying to find my 2011 installation):

# mount /dev/sdb9 /mnt/disk
mount: /dev/sdb9 is already mounted or /mnt/disk busy
       /dev/sdb9 is already mounted on /run/os-prober/dev/sdb9
..
# mount /dev/sdb8 /mnt/disk
mount: /dev/sdb8 is already mounted or /mnt/disk busy
       /dev/sdb8 is already mounted on /run/os-prober/dev/sdb8

# cat /run/os-prober/dev/sdb8/etc/mandriva-release 
Mandriva Linux release 2011.0 (Official) for x86_64

# ps aux|grep prober
root       540  0.0  0.0  23588  1068 pts/1    S+   09:50   0:00 grep --color prober

# mount|grep sdf6
/dev/sdf6 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdf6 type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096)

# mount|grep os-prober
/dev/sda2 on /run/os-prober/dev/sda2 type reiserfs (ro,relatime)
/dev/sdb7 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdb7 type vfat (ro,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)

/dev/sdf2 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdf2 type reiserfs (ro,relatime)
/dev/sdf6 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdf6 type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sdf7 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdf7 type reiserfs (ro,relatime)
/dev/sdf8 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdf8 type reiserfs (ro,relatime)
/dev/sdf9 on /run/os-prober/dev/sdf9 type reiserfs (ro,relatime)

I have seen this before ever running grub-customizer so I believe it is due to update-grub2 or grub2-mkconfig, perhaps, which I have run before.
