Seems that i figured out the problem!
My /etc/fstab had no world-readable permissions.
After changing 
-rw-r----- 1 root root 716 30. Dez 12:52 /etc/fstab
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 716 31. Dez 15:44 /etc/fstab
the mount-plugin works fine.

Normaly there is no need for normal users to read fstab, because mount/umount
got a suid-bit or corresponding PCAPS to override file permissions. But the
mount-plugin seems to read as user process fstab direcly and will fail without
world-read permissions.
