Description of problem:
Since installing this version (update of this week), the mount point
for my USB disk is no longer /mount/usbdisk, but /mount/Ap.
The "Ap" seems to be a random string (some variable uninitialized?)
When I look with mtools, the FAT16 filesystem on the USB disk has
no volume label, so it cannot come from that.
When downgrading to hal-0.4.2-1, the problem disappears.
I'll mark this bug as Normal, but since it may involve an
uninitialized variable, this may have security consequences.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to hal-0.4.5-1
2. Insert USB stick
Actual Results: USB stick shows up as /media/Ap ("Ap" also shown as
text on GNOME icon)
Expected Results: USB stick should be mounted on /media/usbdisk
(because it doesn't have
a volume label).
See attached output from 'hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes'.

Should read /media/usbdisk and /media/Ap, of course.
This should be fixed in hal-0.4.6 which will be in Rawhide and FC3
updates soon. Closing this bug.
