As i thought.  Why should the requirements of Mondo and/or your DR
environment dictate how ReaR handles destination partition remapping?  I
can see how adding LV on top of remapped partitions could really
complicate things, but manually editing the diskrestore script isn't a
bag of laughs either.

I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that partition remapping is
seriously broken on at least a couple of fronts, which i'll post under
new threads.
