I believe you need to use "umount -s /F1" and "umount -s /F2".  I think
the -s and -u flags might be mutually exclusive, or, rather, one overrides
the other (thus, if you specify -su, only -u is recognized).

Yep, just like this.

So, what's the problem?  You seem to have gotten rid of the /F1 and /F2
mounts here...  Can you please show a log of the invocation of a new "bash
--login -c /bin/mount" from the cmd prompt?  Do the mounts show up again?
How about "bash --login -x -c /bin/mount"?  Do you see where these mounts
are added?
