Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 134454
icons shown on the top of each other

Description of problem:
To a machine with a floppy drive, wich shows up as /mnt/floppy
in /etc/fstab, and a floppy mounted on it I connected a USB
floppy drive with another floppy in it. This action caused
another floppy to get mounted as well, this time on /media/floppy
and a new floppy icon showed up which exactly covered the one
which was already there making it to "disappear".
There were actually two icons, as it was possible to drag one
to a side with a mouse, but an initial effect was somewhat
It does not seem likely that such hardware configuration will be
very popular with "naive" users but an underlying mechanism may
show up with similar effects on other occasions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After floppy icons were dragged apart once on subsequent logins
they show up in separate locations.
FC3 is now Fedora Legacy. Does this problem still occur on FC4 or FC5?
I can't seem to reproduce it now, though I vaguely remember it occuring
back in FC3.
> Does this problem still occur on FC4 or FC5?
Probably not; but I did not have many occasions to repeat that.
I can't reproduce this on FC4 or FC5, and I've certainly done similar things
(e.g., two different optical drives, both with CDs in them), if not with a built
in floppy and a USB floppy. I remember the icons used to appear on top of
themselves back a long time ago, but not recently.
I'm going to close this.
