If you're talking about aotofs/automount, isn't the point that the
filesystem is umounted without user interaction?  IOW, cd or open a
file under the mountpoint, and the FS mounts. Close the file or cd out
and the FS should umount itself after the timeout set in

FWIW, when I'm testing automount-related issues I find having an xterm
running ``watch du'' to be very useful.
