use of spaces in local DVD mount point produces confusing "mount -a" output

Description of problem:
Arguably this is a nit, but it is probably worth mentioning. When you insert a
DVD it gets automouted at a point that has spaces in it. That's fine if you're
just using the graphical browse tool. However, if you want to use something
else (i.e. I wanted to do a xen guest OS install, so needed the local mount
point), the actual mount point is misleading to the eyes if you look at the
Here's what I captured with ps for the automount part:
> root 5082 3380 0 12:52 ? 00:00:00 /usr/libexec/hal-storage-mount
> root 5083 5082 0 12:52 ? 00:00:00 /bin/mount -t iso9660 -o
noexec,nosuid,nodev,uid=11277,noatime,utf8 /dev/hda /media/FC-6 x86_64 DVD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf /usr/libexec/hal-storage-mount
Steps to Reproduce:
# mount | grep media
/dev/hda on /media/FC-6 x86_64 DVD type iso9660
Output from "mount" that is not easy to fool the eyes - maybe use underscores or
dashes instead of spaces?
No, it's a bug if tools can't handle spaces in mount points.
Did you even read the bug?
Sure I did! I agree my comment 1 was a bit misleading since I mentioned tools
and you mentioned something with output "being hard on the eyes".
