Description of problem:
If I connect my external hard disk, a 120G WDC HDD in a Cypress Semiconductor USB-2.0 IDE Adapter, usbcore will load usb-storage and gnome-volume-manager / Nautilus will automount the drive.
If I then unmount and disconnect the device it will not be re-mounted on re-connection. D-BUS will see it and HAL, at least according to the HAL Device Manager, detects it.
If, however, I rmmod usb-storage after I disconnect the device it gets automounted just fine on reconnection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect Cypress external HDD
2. gnome-volume-manager automounts it
3. Unmount and disconnect external HDD
4. Re-connect external HDD
5. gnome-volume-manager does /not/ automount
Actual Results: gnome-volume-manager does not automount the external HDD
Expected Results: gnome-volume-manager should automount the external HDD
