Well, at least now you know where to work. Its no fstab issue anymore. But I'll have to leave you in more capable hands, as I'm not a nautilus/gnome user.

It seems strange to me that mdk made such a setup. Why would it wish a normal user have no access to mnt? I don't see the point.

Yes, that simply it. In my suse box I ask for the properties of the dir, I can can see the perms.

Perms are quite confusing, in the begining.
I had to do some backup dirs in my recent install, so I created four /backup dirs under / and edited perms to beowned by "root, users". They are owned by root but everyone belonging to "users" group can write to it.

There are several ways to config perms. I like this kind of linux freedom.
