Bug Description

Binary package hint: fuse-utils

When mounting an encfs filesystem from fstab, encfs is passed arguments it does not understand. The mount.fuse script needs to be modified to recognize encfs specific parameters and pass the remaining parameters on to fuse.

encfs: invalid option -- o
EncFS Password:
fuse: invalid argument `rw'
fuse failed. Common problems:
 - fuse kernel module not installed (modprobe fuse)
 - invalid options -- see usage message

the mount command passes the fuse arguments to encfs with the -o option, but encfs requires those arguments to be passed with the -- option.

Usage: encfs [options] rootDir mountPoint [-- [FUSE Mount Options]]

sudo mount encfs#/tmp/crypt.raw /tmp/crypt -t fuse -o debug
