Systemd mount on synology DSM 7.1.1 fails

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

on Synology DSM 7.1.1-42962 Update 1, an rclone systemd mount unit fails due to an invalid short "no-mtab" flag.

Executing the same mount command systemd is trying to do WITHOUT the no-mtab "-n" flag works fine. I'm guessing there's a collision with rclone's own "-n" short flag for dry-run.

Testing with a simple bind mount (which mounted successfully), the ExecMount in status showed it also including the -n flag, so it may be automatically added by DSM's mount manager? I don't see a way to tell it to NOT do that.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

A log from the command with the -vv flag

nothing is sent to the log_file in the mount options when this error occurs.

note, this happened on a previous version as well, though I updated while troubleshooting this and do not recall what version that was. just may be safe to say this wasn't introduced in 1.60.
