Description of problem:
This problem is related to bug 333961. I suspect umount relies on /etc/mtab to
identify the filesystem type in order to call the corresponding umount.gfs2
helper. If the filesystem was originally mounted with the -n option (don't
update mtab), umount doesn't call the umount.gfs2 helper at all.
Comment 1 Karel Zak 2008-01-11 19:27:00 EST
That's right behavior. There is nothing for fixing. You have to update /etc/mtab
by "mount -f". IMHO this is NOTABUG.
