anyone who really knows filesystems, can you explain this one to me

I have two identical drives, both 500GB.

Primary is called "earth" and secondary is called "backup"

In terminal:
$cd /Volumes/
drwxrwxrwt@ 5 root admin 170 Nov 21 16:34:28 2007 .
drwxrwxr-t@ 33 root admin 1190 Nov 21 16:32:29 2007 ..
drwxrwxr-x 10 me staff 408 Nov 21 16:35:15 2007 backup
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 1 Nov 21 16:32:12 2007 earth -> /
drwxrwxr-t 8 root admin 340 Nov 21 16:34:30 2007 earth 1

As you can see, there are two listings for earth, "earth", and "earth 1". Most apps do not show a distinction, like Disk Utility does not see three drives. However, Activity Monitor in the disk area, shows "earth" listed twice. There is no numeral 1 after the name.

Now, in terminal, if I run `open /Volumes` a Finder window opens with three aliases in it:
earth 1

Each shows different contents:

"earth 1"

Anyone have any idea what is going on? As a side note, I just pulled the "backup" drive out, to replace it, as it was making some strange noises, and while that drive was not initialized, the above issue was not there.

I am running 10.5 and did not notice this issue on 10.4, though I may not have looked for it.
