Description Warren Togami 2008-08-27 15:45:22 EDT
Despite these earlier patches against glib and ltspfs, it is still possible for local dev mounts owned by one user to appear on the desktop on other users even if they are inaccessible.  This happens in the case where all users are members of a common group and that group is their primary group.

glib W_OK instead of only R_OK might solve this problem, but the earlier idea of fsacls on /media/$username with permissions 0700 might be a better idea.  Test both ideas.

This makes a good point that the patches above did not actually help at all for normal GNOME.  GNOME needs to take multi-user into account.  Unfortunately while this suggested change would help normal GNOME, it wouldn't help LTSP.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

I think this isn't an issue anymore.  If it is, it should be fixed in upstream, not here.
