Description of problem:
I have a external USB-Harddrive which carries an encrypted (cryptsetup-luks) partition. formated with an ext3 fs!
When I plug in the USB-Disk, a dialog appears what prompts me for the passphrase!
After entering that, I get an error, what tells me that the attempt to mount the drive failed!
But an Icon appears on the Desktop which represents the USB-Drive!
I cannot access it through that, but an umount option is showed when right-click
on the icon.
Umount fails from the desktop.
So I did an "umount /media/disk/" as root, that works, the icon disappears.
An "ls /media/" shows me, that a mount point called /media/disk still exists.
"ls /media/disk" shows me that that directory is empty.
After "rm -rf /media/disk" that mount point is deleted and when I try to mount the external drive then it works fine!

Steps to Reproduce:
1.plug in an luks-cryptsetup encrypted removable media
2.enter the passphrase
3.here we are
mount error appears
the externel drive should have been mounted properly
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
