Description of problem:
System>Preferences>Removable Drives and Media
If you check "Auto-run programs on new drives and media", this doesn't actually
have any effect because gnome-mount mounts items with noexec. We should figure
out a better solution here.
Yup, we should fix this.
See also my comments to bug 188091 which is blocking this one.
Actually in Rawhide with gnome-mount 0.5 and hal 0.5.8.1 you can now do
gnome-mount -d /dev/sda1 -oremount,exec
which g-v-m should do when wanting to run programs on some media. Reassigning to
g-v-m so we can fix this during FC7.
This is fixed in the current packages, according to David.
