Bug #488756 DeviceKit interferes with livecd-creator

It was suggested that "devkit-disks --inhibit" be used to prevent GNOME from mounting the temporary device mapper device that can cause livecd-creator to fail.

    devkit-disks --inhibit -- /bin/true
This succeeds.

    devkit-disks --inhibit -- /bin/true -foo
This fails with:
Error launching program: Failed to execute child process "--" (No such file or directory)

devkit-disks isn't handling parameters properly.

Here is the relevant quote from the g_option_context_parse() docs:

A '--' option is stripped from argv unless there are unparsed options before and after it, or some of the options after it start with '-'.

I've put a patch in our rpm. Leaving this bug open so David sees it when he returns.

David, do you want to move this patch upstream and close this bug ?
