Description Peter Verthez 2005-01-15 11:31:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

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):

How reproducible:

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).

Additional info:

See attached output from 'hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes'.

Should read /media/usbdisk and /media/Ap, of course.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2005-01-20 13:52:37 EST
This should be fixed in hal-0.4.6 which will be in Rawhide and FC3
updates soon. Closing this bug.
