Thanks for the information!

The last lines of my /etc/fstab now look like this:

/dev/linux_lvm/konjak-vg-root   /debian/root ext4 
mountprog=/usr/local/bin/ext4fuse,allow_other,ro
/dev/linux_lvm/konjak-vg-home   /debian/home ext4 
mountprog=/usr/local/bin/ext4fuse,allow_other,ro

and now mount -a works :-)
