No problem, since it's mounted read-only :)

Actually, it may be bug in ntfs code. I may even know where
the problem is, just didn't get to correct it yet.

I just thought the option to force the kernel do the unmounts
in opposite order might be useful even for someone else sometimes.
If it's not so, I'll just live with it the way it is and will fix
the ntfs :)
