Description of problem:

The man page says:

 When the tool starts up, it scans /etc/fstab for all filesystems
 that have been configured to allow users to mount and unmount them.

but then usermount fails to identify filesystems with the "user" option, showing

"sudo usermount" will work, but that is not the point.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. usermount
Actual results:
There are no filesystems which you are allowed to mount or unmount.

Expected results:

Additional info:
