After setting vfs.usermount=1 and configuring things the usual way
(setting the owner of device and mount point), attempt to mount results
in EPERM - unless the device has been successfully (as root) mounted
(and unmounted) before.

Configure usermount as described in FreeBSD GNOME FAQ.  Try to mount.
Su(8) to root, mount and unmount.  Go back to your unpriviledged account,
try to mount.
