Description of problem:
After removable flash media such as a Memory Stick is connected to the  
computer, it does not show up on the desktop. When you open "Computer" in 
Nautilus, it displays the media. When the media is clicked on, it displays the 
message "Unable to mount selected volume: mount: /dev/sdb already mounted 
or /media/usbdisk1 busy 
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb is already mounted on /media/usbdisk1" 
After this message is displayed, the device appears on the desktop.

2. Insert media, and open "Computer" 
3. Attempt to open the media and the error message should be displayed. 

Actual Results:  Media did not show up on desktop, forced to rely on workaround, error message 
was displayed. 

Expected Results:  Media shows up on desktop initially, no error messages are displayed.

Most likely updating to a newer version of gamin will fix this.
