The mount command reports me the filesystem is ok with fstab. If I umount as 
root it works, then I can re-mount as normal user, but cannot umount as 
normal user. But the mount point belongs to the user and my fstab contains 
the users option:

# /dev/sda12
UUID=E63F-7400  /mnt/disco2     vfat    
defaults,utf8,umask=000,users,exec,suid 0       1

[luca at fluca:~]$ mount | grep disco1
/dev/sda11 on /mnt/disco1 type vfat (rw,nodev,utf8,umask=000)

What am I missing?
