Package: thunar
Version: 1.0.0-2
Severity: normal

When thunar is running as a daemon, a removable device that is unmounted,
unplugged, and plugged back in cannot be re-mounted. The error is
"org.freedsekop.hal.storage.mount-removable no <-- (action, result)".

If the thunar daemon is terminated, and thunar is started manually from a
terminal or from the xfce4 menu instead, this error does not occur.
