Why did you try '-u' and not '-v'?  Moreover 'gnome-umount --help'
suggests that the syntax above is wrong.  Well, this is only a guess
as there is no documentation.  'gnome-mount' and 'gnome-unmount' in
general are broken although not absolutely, and bug reports are
simply ignored, but in some circumstances that stuff can be used.

If you will try to use 'umount' then in most cases you will
see precisely what you quoted.

'gnome-mount' and 'mount' are not the same interface.
