Because they are mountpoints too?

It's used in the media:/ fstab backend that simply query KMountPoint... then 
it would require special cases for supermount. And since I suspect that this 
kind of handling could be necessary in other software as well, it's a good 
thing to put this fix in KMountPoint.
