shouldn't mount check /etc/mtab? fstab is static.

If you want to work on this, look how utils/umount.c reads the mtab
file.  If you get stuck, feel free to ask:)
Once I understand better what's going on I wmight have a look. First thing is getting my box working again!

Howver you answer only half of the question: the other one is: if a volume is not in /etc/fstab, how does it up being mounted during boot?
