Description Steve Fox 2007-04-26 10:48:20 EDT
Description of problem:

My SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB removable USB drive is not writable by my non-root
user ID after gnome-volume-manager mounts it and Nautilus opens a new window for
it. The /media/disk directory is owned by root instead of my userid. This is a
regression from my FC6 machine where this works flawlessly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy files to my USB drive on FC6 and unmount drive.
2. Bring USB drive to rawhide machine and plug in.
3. Nautilus opens a window, but I cannot write to or delete files from it.

Actual results:

Nautilus prints a warning that I do not have appropriate ownership and refuses
to write.

Expected results:

The drive (/media/disk) should be owned by my userid.

Additional info:

When I unmount the drive using Nautilus, I do not get the 'You may safely remove
this device' message that I get on FC6. That message gives me warm, fuzzy feelings.
