[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#633771: Bug#633771: thunar: useless error when, ejecting removable media

I have the same thing going on here. I get an apparently harmless error 
every time I eject my USB flashdrive, but in my case the error text 
isn't always the same. Sometimes I get "Failed to mount XXX", sometimes 
I get "Failed to open directory XXX", and I think I've seen one more 
that I can't reproduce now. Changing volume manager options or just 
unticking the box entirely doesn't seem to make any difference. In all 
cases, the volume seems to mount, read, and eject just fine, only with 
the spurious error when ejecting. I don't keep up on Linux tech very 
much anymore, so I'm not sure which files or processes to poke at. But I 
can certainly try to test things more thoroughly if someone tells me 
what to look for.
