Mounting works, of course, due to the 'users' option. How about 
accessing the files?

If you can access the files like this then the manpage is buggy, because 
it doesn't mention those options for ntfs (they do exist for ntfs-3g and 
vfat though). Also according to the manpage the files on ntfs shouldn't 
be readable by anyone except root, unless you use 'uid=' or 'gid=' 

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
