type=AVC msg=audit(1145551774.737:52508): avc:  denied  { write } for  pid=32457
comm="umount" name="mtab" dev=dm-0 ino=17958918
scontext=system_u:system_r:mount_t:s0 tcontext=user_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 tclass=file

Hmm, this may also explain why the automatically-mount-on-insert behaviour of my
usb key went a bit.. strange yesterday.  (Ie, it stopped working).
/proc/mounts and /etc/mtab were out of sync.

Also a labeling problem.  restorecon /etc/mtab.  

You might want to run restorecond.  

Latest policy should keep this up /etc/mtab the correct context.
