I have two NTFS hard disk partitions (one on the laptop internal HD - always present, one on an external HD via eSATA - sometimes plugged in, sometimes not). These are mounted in /etc/fstab:
UUID=0123456789ABCDEF /home/blabla/DatenWin ntfs-3g nofail,noatime,user,users,uid=myself,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=de_DE.UTF-8 0 0 UUID=0123456789ABCDEF /home/blabla/XCs ntfs-3g nofail,noatime,user,users,uid=myself,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=de_DE.UTF-8 0 0
For comparison, this is how an ext4 partition gets mounted:
UUID=0123456789ABCDEF /home/blabla/Daten ext4 noatime,acl,discard 1 2
This setup used to work fine since long. Both directories under /home/myself, i.e. the DatenWin and XCs directories, were visible, they did present their respective disk contents, and the fstab settings provide me with the required rights.
After a recent update of Tumbleweed to 20180427, however, things went bad. The two directory entries DatenWin and XCs for the NTFS partitions appear as hidden now in Dolphin and Krusader, although they have no dot as their first character. They can be made visible in the file managers (e.g., Alt+. in Dolphin), but that is a nuisance. I continue to be able to create files and directories underneath and access existing files properly, i.e. the rights are still okay as before.
When the external hard disk is not present, its respective mount point - the DatenWin directory - reverts back to its old self, i.e. it is visible as is normal and it has the correct rights.
Mount points for ext4 partitions continue normally as before.
Any ideas? Is this behavior with mount points for NTFS partitions intended now? How can I get back to the long-time way of simply showing such mount points?
PS: My other Linux system, Manjaro (on 4.16 kernel as well) keeps acting normal with visible mount point directories.
