I have a problem with USB disk on key (Lexar Jumpdrive) in test 3:
after insertion, hotplug recognizes the drive and adds an entry to
/etc/fstab like this:
/dev/sda /mnt/diskonkey auto ....

This is incorrect, and as a result, clicking on the icon in GNOME's
"Computer" or manually mounting via mount /mnt/diskonkey returns error.
Correct entry should be 

/dev/sda1 /mnt/diskonkey auto ....
After manually changing fstab entry, everything works fine.

This is, unfortunately, a problem - various diskonkeys use various

This needs to be fixed in updfstab by having it probe for partitions.
