Nautilus does not mount NTFS partition

Description of problem:
I have a dual boot system with a large NTFS partition.
In "authorisations" I have Explicit Authorisations:
[username], always, 12 days ago, Auth as root (uid 0), Must be on console, Must be in active session, must be program /user/bin/gnome-mount, Must be SElinux context unconfined_u:....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click computer icon on desktop
2. Click the name of ntfs partition
Nothing. From what I can tell there is no error message shown, no log message, no SElinux error message.
A new window should open up with the partition mounted.
I can right click and there is an option to mount partition, but this also does nothing.
If this is error with gnome-mount instead, its version is gnome-mount-0.8-1.fc9.i386. System is Rawhide (or Fedora 9), fully updated on 7 may 2008. Problem has persisted since installing the preview version about 12 days ago.
This is not a data loss issue, so severity is "medium", but it is important as it IS a data access issue.
(sorry about leaving it this late for the bug report - Fedora is not my primary OS.)
I have managed to mount the partition in a strange way:
1. Log into normal account. The partition is NOT mounted.
2. Use fast-user-switching applet to log in as root. The Partition IS mounted.
3. Log out as root. The partition is still mounted for the normal user.
Logging out of the normal account and then logging back in still shows the
mounted partition. Restarting the computer returns it to its prior state of not
being mounted (or mountable without the root dance.).
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
