It doesn't like Windows? :)

If I remember correctly, NTFS-3G works in user space, and uses FUSE
to do the mounting.

There should probable be a see also pointing to FUSE. But there
doesn't seem to be a fuse man page. You may want to read the
documentation in /usr/share/doc/fuse-2.7.4.

The error message is most likely generated by the mount.fuse helper
application. It really should be improved. I am used to seeing it
when rpm is checking for free space, and it tries to read my
fuse-mounted encrypted directory. It is possible to mount file
systems using fuse that root cannot access.
