Description You 2008-10-26 13:54:06 EDT
Description of problem:

Clicking on the NTFS partition after clicking the "Computer" icon on the desktop gives the following dialog box:

Error: cannot mount volume
Invalid mount option when attempting the mount The volume 'ACER'.

Followed a few seconds later by:

Opening "ACER".
You can stop this operation by clicking cancel.

and finally another dialog box:

Unable to mount location
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

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

I installed Fedora 10 Snapshot 3 and updated to the latest packages.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In gnome, click the "computer" icon on desktop, click on the NTFS volume
Actual results:

As mentioned above

Expected results:

The internal partition should be automatically available, perhaps after asking for authorisation the first time this happens.

This seems to be fixed in latest (actually yestarday/day before's) rawhide - the NTFS partition is automatically mounting upon startup.
