Hmm. I don't know ----

I renamed my mediamanagerrc file and inserted some USB flash drives.

With no mediamanagerrc file, the device appeared on the desktop as "1.0G Removable Media." When I let the dialog mount the device, the device point was /media/disk.

I left that device mounted and inserted another USB flash drive. Same similar icon name but the mount point was /media/disk-1.

I renamed the icon labels for both devices and Safely Removed. Then I inserted both devices again. The icon labels displayed correctly with my new names but the mount points were the same as previous, /media/disk and /media/disk-1.

Of course, I can use the popup menu dialog to explicitly define a mount point location for the USB devices.

In a HAL system I don't need to define a mount point for optical disks. The disk is always mounted to a mount point using the disk label, which matches the icon label. As mentioned in a previous post, that behavior is seen in Xfce 4.10 and KDE 4.8.5 too.

My guess is we need only copy/paste some code snippets from halbackend to tdehwbackend. I'll try to look but I'm not certain exactly what to search.
