Upon further investigation, I discovered that /tmp was mounted separately.

/tmp was mounted on /dev/sda3, and the loop device(s) (/dev/loop1)
reside under /dev/sda2.  When I moved Image.iso to /root/Image.iso,
the mount call worked fine.

If I disable RSBAC (using softmode) both mount calls work correctly.
