that is already configured that way, the problem arise when there is an
abnormal disconnection and the mount point is not deleted.
resulting in the need to create a new mount point next time.
inserting usb device YB-PORTABLE and disconnecting abnormally (e.g. system
the mount point /media/YB-PORTABLE remain.
reconnecting usb device a new mount point will be created /media/YB-PORTABLE-1
this is not good since all links point to /media/YB-PORTABLE/
I have the same problem from time to time, though the circumstances are
not completely clear, i.e. I work a lot with a pendrive and am always
very careful to mount/umount (via the Device Manager, and watching the
confirmation icon in the panel when unmounting). Nevertheless, every
once in a while the unmount seems to leave an undeleted mount point
behind, as you say. Furthermore, the mountpoint can't be deleted even by
root as the system seems to think it's still busy. Using 'fuser' shows
no active processes holding it open, but I've found that logging out
will enable root to delete the mountpoint.
Something makes me think this is all GVFS's fault, but maybe I have a
suspicious mind. In any case, it's a PITA.
