In fact it does create problems.  If you have an entry for a nfs mount in
/etc/fstab allowing it to be mounted by ordinary users using th user
mount option, it is no longer possible for such an user to unmount the
corresponding file system once it is mounted multiple times.  Instead the
following error message is returned:
  umount: it seems /var/www/VTX is mounted multiple times
