Needless to say, this shouldn't happen.  The only possible reason that 
springs to mind is that perhaps DOS partition 1 on disk 4 is an 
extended partition ?

If it *is* an extended partition, you'll need to mount /dev/ad3s5 or 
higher - extended partitions start at imaginary DOS partition 5.

Don't _EVER_ lose your sense of humour !
