Description of problem:
Sometimes when I login to my GNOME session the cd/dvd icon on the desktop
appears twice. Both icons are fully functional, and if I eject the cd/dvd
through one of them this icon is correctly removed, but its duplicate remains as
a broken (dangling) reference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
BTW: I have both x86 and x86_64 versions installed.
Occasionally (see "Additional Info" below)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot system with non-bootable DVD on drive
2.login to GNOME session through GDM
DVD icon appears twice on desktop
Only one icon should appear
Not very sure, but it seems to happen when there's a DVD already inserted on the
drive before I login with GDM. Specifically, it seems to happen all the time
with my "Rainbow6 Vegas" game DVD (machine is dual-boot). I don't recall it
happening with music CDs.
Not sure if it makes a difference if the DVD is already inserted when the
machine boots or if I simply insert it before loggin in (but after the boot).
Maybe this is related to bug #389411 and bug #245856.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '8'.
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 8'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 8 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 to the applicable version. 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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
