vfat mount problem after update

hi all,
after the last update of fedora16 (systemd?) i cannot properly set the permisions for a vfat hdd.
the relevant position in fstab is:
/dev/mapper/vg_mark1-media /media/media vfat defaults,users,rw,umask=000,uid=500,gid=500,shortname=winnt 1 2
and still after mounting it the corresponding mtab position is:
/dev/mapper/vg_mark1-media /media/media vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=cp437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=winnt,errors=remount-ro 0 0
in addition the usb vfat devices are working ok...
seems like the options for hdd aren't picked up. how to debug/deal with the problem?
thanks for help in advance

Re: vfat mount problem after update

one issue could possibly be due to systemd now mounting /media as tmpfs. I have seen quite a few mounts to /media that used to work fine are now causing problems.

Change the mount point over to /mnt instead of /media and see if that fixes your issue.
