Description of problem:
I have (as everybody should) a separate partition for /var/tmp on my machines. 
Apparently nautilus doesn't recognize that this is an ordinary system partition.
 It presents an icon for this partition on the user desktops.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create /var/tmp partition
Actual results:
/var/tmp icon

Expected results:
no such icon

David, you recently fixed this for /var/log/audit, right ? Want to fix this one,
too ?
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2007-10-16 23:40:26 EDT
(reassigning to proper component)

Gah, yeah, /var/log/audit was bug 333041. I'll fix it for /var/tmp too.

Alex: for gvfs we probably should use a gconf key for mount points the user
wants to avoid appearing on the desktop and default to something reasonable...
Like a more full subset of FHS2.3 paths (excluding subdirs of /media and /mnt).
Something to think about.
