Description Richard Jasmin 2015-10-05 19:15:29 EDT
Description of problem:
You want a extended usb drive for some reason.maybe you code and you need link support.Maybe you just like linus very much.

So you format a stick to your liking the normal way and mount it.You unmount it.
Then you reinsert it and funny things start happening.

As a normal user the drive automounts itself as if it was formatted (v)fat.Normally this require root access.

Again you can write to the root of the drive.Normally this requires root access.

On a home PC this doesnt matter much but on a LAN....HMMMMMMM......only dell to my knowledge has the ability to disable usb connections.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
detected in 22

How reproducible:
always after format. (type 82 in fdisk)

Steps to Reproduce:
see above

Additional info:
This is one of those "feature" bugs that dont cause harm and are nice to have but make you scratch your head as to why they happen.
