Default mount --move in F16

This sequence of commands once worked in F16 (in kernel 3.2.10-3)

mkdir -p /tmp/testing
cd /tmp/testing/
mkdir -p foo bar
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs foo/
mount --move foo bar/

Sometime around 3.3.0-4 and maybe before the last command above gives
this message:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /tmp/testing/foo,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

This is still the case in 3.4.4-4.fc16, the mount --move does not work.

However, in F17 (3.4.4-5.fc17) the above sequence works fine.

Could someone hit me with a clue stick?
