Description William Shotts 2006-02-19 16:44:32 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060210 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
If a user attaches a USB storage device (say a pen drive) the device is automatically mounted.  If the user then logs off, the device is not unmounted.  I see this being a danger in that a user might assume that if he logs off, he/she could just pull the pen drive out.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a USB storage device while logged in as a user.
2. Log out
3. At the login screen press Ctl-Alt-F1 and log in as root.  Type "mount"

Actual Results:  Removable storage volumes remain mounted.

Expected Results:  Removable storage volumes shuld have been unmounted when the user who mounted them logged out.

hal isn't responsible for mounting/unmounting volumes, so this bug is filed in
the wrong component. Please file a bug against gnome-volume-manager and/or
whatever KDE package handles automounting instead.
