I kind of ran into that myself. /mnt is owned by root, so mounting user stuff
to that is always problematic.
mount user stuff to /home/you/mountpoint.
Eg. I mount my Documents partition and my Backup partition to
/home/me/Documents and /home/me/Backup. This way, I am the owner and I don't
have to ???? with changing the ownership of /mnt/stuff.
