Description of problem:
Every interactive login/out generates spurious automount messages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login or logout at the gdm screen
Created attachment 41572 [details]
The messages don't appear if I use /misc instead of /mnt as my
automount directory. This is an easy workaround, but the messages
shouldn't appear regardless.
The mount attempts are being triggered because pam_console is attempting to give
the user permission to access those directories. This is used to make
hotplugging work. If you don't want those directories touched, you'll need to
remove references to those directories from /etc/security/console.perms.
For what it's worth, it hits me on my workstation at work as well (I also modify
the automounter configuration from its default, which doesn't cause this to
happen), but it works the way it's supposed to, so I'm closing this as won't fix.
