Something between add_fstab_entry and the actual mount call removes the
'@/'. My debug() shows:

add_fstab_entry(1048): fstab: mountable=btrfsvol:/dev/sda2/@/var/spool mountpoint=/var/spool
libguestfs: check_for_filesystem_on: btrfsvol:/dev/sda2/var/spool (btrfs)

So 'fs->fstab[].mountable' gets tweaked somewhere.
