Kinda OT, but does automount have any advantages over supermount (other
than not requiring kernel patches, etc)? I've been using supermount for the
past 6 months and it's never given me any problems.
I too experienced the "locked" CD drive under GNOME until I disabled all of
the automatic-mount-on-desktop rubbish and just used supermount instead.
