There _was_ a problem with umount that caused a segfault with the badly
formed (i.e. empty) /etc/fstab. I fixed that and checked in the fix on
Nov. 27th. Was with a current CVS version?  If you want to track it down,
you could edit busybox/init.c with something like:
     signal(SIGUSR1, halt_signal);
-    signal(SIGUSR2, reboot_signal);
+    signal(SIGUSR2, halt_signal);

so you have time to read the error messages.
