Subject: nautilus: should properly unmount fuse mounts
Date: Sat, 7 Feb 2009 18:13:01 +0000
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: nautilus
Severity: wishlist

If I mount a partition with sshfs[0], it appears in nautilus as a disk.
However, when I right-click on the icon and choose "Unmount Volume",
nautilus complains:

Unable to unmount castro
umount: /home/bmc/audio/castro is not in the fstab (and you are not root)

Obviously, this is true.  That mount is not in the fstab, and I am not
root.  However, nautilus should detect that this is a fuse mount and
gracefully unmount it.  Checking /etc/mtab or /proc/mounts will display
"fuse" as part of the filesystem type, so detecting this is trivial.
