  Nautilus can't properly unmount FUSE file systems

Bug description:
  Normal users can create and mount fuser-filesystems, such as encfs. By
  doing "encfs ~/somedir ~/some-other-dir", these filesystems correctly
  show up on the desktop as mounted filesystems.

  However, if you right-click and select "unmount" you get a error-
  message saying you cannot unmount the filesystem, because it does not
  appear in fstab, and you are not root.

  This is factually incorrect -- you *can* unmount the filesystem,
  assuming you're the user who mounted it in the first place, by using
  the command "fusermount -u directoryname"

  Nautilus should recognize this kind of filesystem and call the
  apropriate command for unmounting, so that it would work, instead of
  falsely claiming that you cannot unount the filesystem.

  Tested with encfs, likely to affect other similar filesystems like

  Affects both Hardy and Intrepid

  Update: Tested with the latest jaunty-alpha, still present.
