Description of problem:

remove the fscontext= argument from the fstab entry and it is now
mountable by non-root user
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

2. try to mount it via Gnome My computer without success
3. mount it as root on commnadline with success
4. Edit fstab entry and remove the fcontext argument

shouldnt need to edit the fstab....
fstab entry that only works with root user as created by hal
/dev/sda1 /media/usbdisk vfat noauto,user,exec,managed,

Sigh... after a reboot I'm no longer able to reproduce this problem.
I'm going to close this out as notabug.
