Description Toralf 2006-01-24 12:42:58 EST
Description of problem:
One of the most convenient features of GNOME 2.2 (and older) was the way
removable devices (or user-mountable filesystems on a fix disk for that matter)
could be mounted/unmounted/ejected via the desktop right-click menu.

For some strange reason, this has in RHEL 4/the newer GNOME releases been
replaced by an MS Windows style "Computer" icon that's a lot more cumbersome to
use. You have to locate the icon (possibly move windows that are in the way
first), double click on that, then point correctly at another icon before you
get the correct context menu to do the actual job. Compare that with just
pointing anywhere in the desktop and clicking with the right button...

Please give me back the "Disks" submenu of the right-click menu!

Yes, I know devices may also be auto-mounted, but often it is desirable to
disable this feature to get more control over what is going on
