FTP connections mounted via FUSE extension curlftpfs not unmounting with Nautilus

I am using curlftpfs to mount FTP servers as local filesystems. Usually, I type in something such as:
curlftpfs -o user=user:pass ftp://ftp.domain.tld/remote/directory ~/.curlftpfs/local/directory
This was working. I wrote a bash script so I would have a GUI for curlftpfs. The script works perfectly. But, whenever I try to 'eject' the connection in Nautilus, it gives me an error:
Unable to unmount
umount: /media/ is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
Now, when I call curlftpfs by itself, it also has the same error. I have to use fusermount to unmount these connections.
What is wrong and how do I fix it?

I thought this was much different from the title.

The how to's say to unmount by su or sudo if your user is on sudoer's list.

As I implied in the title, I want to be able to unmount the attached servers without launching terminal or calling Nautilus with root access. I want to be able to eject it from Nautilus without doing anything else. The fact that I cannot is my problem.


curlftpfs, fuse
