Thanks for the report - in theory this should only occur if you
have a kernel from before July 1st but a newer userland. Assuming
that's not the case, I must have overlooked something. Could you
update to the latest sbin/mount, and then post the output of:

	mount -v | grep /thumb
	truss umount /thumb
