Problems mounting/unmounting flash USB drive

USB is being mounted with command: mount /dev/uba1 (only this works)
Moded extract from fstab:
/dev/uba1 /mnt/usb auto noatime,rw,users,exec,uid=1000,gid=100 0 0

(/dev/sda1 doesn't work, so I must use /dev/uba1)

Problem is that sometimes Slackware (10.1 with kernel doesn't finish mounting/unmounting. Here is screenshot what happens:
and of course files on drive aren't being saved.

Has anyone experienced something like this?

/dev/sda1 /mnt/flash vfat noauto,user 0 0
