mounted devices sometimes don't show on desktop

Description of problem:
Mounted CDs, FlashDisk, Camera etc., although automatically mounted
to the filesystem, sometimes just don't show on my desktop, sometimes
they do but mostly with crippled labels.
To eject a CD, I have to issue the umount command manually, with
mixed results (it sometimes complains that the device is busy).
Once my camera (usb mass storage device) didn't even mount to the
filesystem at all.
Example 1: I plug in a USB flash disk, the icon appears with a strange
name "Ao". It is mounted as /media/Ao
Example 2: I insert a CD, it mounts to /media/cdrecorder, but the icon
doesn't show. I try to browse the CD using Nautilus (Computer->CD RW
Drive->...) but it says (Unable to mount blah blah). But the icon then
shows and I am able to browse the CD.
Example 3: I insert a CD, it mounts to /media/cdrecorder, but the icon
doesn't show. I browse it's content using MC. After I am finished, I
change the working directory to home, properly quit the MC, but the CD
refuses to umount, because it's "busy" (user root).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
? - 0.4.7-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a removable device
FC3 with all recent bugfixes applied.
What you're seeing is probably a bug with gamin insofar that the
gnome-vfs-daemon doesn't get an event from gam_server when a disk is mounted. I
also think, FWIW, this is fixed with the latest updates.
