[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#602400: thunar: mount point for MP3 player is gibberish

It seems the weird name was coming from a corrupted volume label in the
root folder of the filesystem.  dosfslabel cannot read or set the volume
label in the root folder (#506786), hence my confusion.

It still seems an unlikely coincidence that the volume label should have
gone corrupt at exactly the same time that I plugged both players into
the computer.  I had mine plugged in earlier that day without any
problem.  I will try to get a hold of the second player again and see if
I can reproduce this, and in particular if I can reproduce it without
Thunar and then without HAL running.
