To be fair, I didn't say the code was wrong. I just wanted to illustrate that 
the code you sent wasn't particularly easy
to work with (from my perspective). Which is fine, we found the problem 
anyways. But in the future it might help you
(and us), to reduce the test case to the most minimal script that still shows 
the behavior. That way we can easily run
it in our machines and see exactly what you see, and we can also focus on the 
stuff that matters (i.e. the `blkid',
`sed', `eval', etc. are all distractions from the actual problem).

I usually practice the code reduction approach myself and I think it's quite 
effective at helping me understand my own
mistakes :-).
