[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#525945: Info received (Bug#525945: Info received ( Bug#525945: Bug#525945: Bug#525945: thunar fails to remount removable media when running as daemon))

I traced through the scripts in /etc/X11/Xsession, and found that 
dbus-launch is pre-pended to $STARTUP after $STARTUP is set to 
$HOME/.xsession, so my method of invoking xfce4 from the console turns into:

   dbus-launch --exit-with-session $HOME/.xsession

$HOME/.xsession contains:

   exec ck-launch-session startxfce4

So, my entire session, *except* dbus is in the ck-launch-session. I 
confirmed this by creating a script to run polkit-auth and direct the 
output to a file. When this script is run from thunar launched as a 
daemon by dbus, the necessary authorization are missing.

I am going to purge libpam-ck-connector so that the stock squeeze 
Xsession scripts can use ck-launch-session as designed, and see what 
happens then.
