If I was wrong here I apologize.  I don't have time to examine each and
every patch that exists outside of this mailing list, so I do have to
trust other people to look at some of them--this is the nature of a

OK.  At first glance it is distro-specific, as Ubuntu (for example) does
not automatically mount new devices into /media.  In fact, that would be
considered undesirable behaviour from my point of view, as the user should
be able to decide which devices to mount.

Also, I would hazard a guess that the popup GUI for encrypted devices
doesn't work with this patch.
