Package: mount
Severity: serious

i did a mount with a usb stick (kingston 1gig), 

mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
cp /path/foobar.zip .
ls (while under /mnt/sda1) shows the newly copied /mnt/sda1/foobar.zip
cd /
umount /mnt/sda1

i remount the stick on another system and noticed it wasnt there, so i 
came back and did the following


the sync did the trick.. 

something is missing somewhere, i shouldn't have to sync in order
to keep my fat32 usb drive intact..

the file was only 21mb.. 

i marked this serious, as i dont know what may have happened if i used
the move command.. but i'll try that next :)

Actually this bug has not been confirmed by util-linux maintainers, and is not
reproducible (linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 2.6.32-28 with util-linux 2.17.2-3.3).

It seems misunderstanding happened between reporters and Moritz (on whether
they actually umounted it or not).

-> Closing the bug against release-notes.
