Problem solved, a hardware fault. /dev/sd2g mounted as ¨/backup¨. The 
odd thing was the main disk drive with all the essential partitions like 
root etc in device /dev/sd1x was physically located in an external box 
which also contained a backup tape device. No documentation to indicate 
this unusual physical arrangement.
