Based on what you say there, I would guess this means that Jan has
proc listed in fstab, so mount tried to reset the mount options to
those specified in fstab, and the kernel proc fs left the options

It seems to me that the buggy behavior is in the proc fs not clearing
the unspecified options. With the classic bitmask mount flags, any
that are not set are cleared by the remount, not left at their current
status. This is why mount merges the existing flags specified in
fstab or mtab with those given on the command line. The behavior
should be the same for the string passed mount flags. In other words,
mount does its merging and whatever options are passed to the kernel
should be enabled, and any that are not should be disabled.
