Description of problem:
Unlike other devices, when a floppy is unmounted its mount point in /media is not removed.  This seems to cause problems for both KDE and GNOME regarding floppy mounting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using a file manager (Konqueror or Nautilus) mount a floppy
2. Note creation of mount point in /media 
3. Unmount floppy in file manager

Actual Results:  Mount point remains after floppy is unmounted

Expected Results:  Mount point is removed

Additional info:

Additional attempts to mount floppy results in build up of mount points.  Further, Konqueror never offers an unumount option for the floppy.

Does 'gnome-umount --block --no-ui --device /dev/fd0' do the right thing?
Comment 2 William Shotts 2006-02-20 12:33:30 EST
Yes. 'gnome-umount --block --no-ui --device /dev/fd0' unmounts it and removes
the mount point in /media.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2006-02-20 12:40:25 EST
Right.. we need a small patch for gnome-vfs to do the right thing. Shouldn't be
terribly difficult, we just need gnome-vfs to use gnome-mount when the
GnomeVFSDrive is known by hal but the GnomeVFSVolume isn't. 

I don't know how the KDE bits work, someone needs to open a separate bug for
these bits as I'm reassigning this bug to gnome-vfs2.

I've posted a patch to upstream here

Comment 5 David Zeuthen 2006-02-24 19:25:26 EST
Patch mentioned in comment 4 is now upstream. Will be included in new gnome-vfs2
packages sometime next week.

The patch mentioned in comment #4 is in gnome-vfs2-2.13.92, so I assume this is
Comment 8 Michal Jaegermann 2006-03-01 11:26:00 EST
Yes, indeed, it looks that this works now as expected.
