Hey man,
My fstab-sync is a binary executable. I maybe you should try reinstalling it via RPM.

Automatic updates of the /etc/fstab file by the fstab-sync program from the HAL daemon
can be disabled by changing the 50-fstab-sync.hal symlink in /etc/hal/device.d directory
to point to /bin/false
A look at 50-fstab-sync.hal properties shows that it points to /usr/sbin/fstab-sync
