Note that it's probably mounting it anyway.  Remember me mentioned a
month or so back about never having known about the --bind option to
mount?  That error would pop up every time, and I'd ignore it every time
since I only needed to read those unchanging filesystems.

You can probably ignore the error, since I don't think /proc is going to
be subject to fs corruption from simultaneous writes causing a race
condition (provided you avoid simultaneous writes  ;)  ).
