CD/USB-drive mounted many times instead of just once

Since this is my first post on the openSUSE forum I’d like to say “hi” first :slight_smile:
I switched from Ubuntu 10.04 to openSUSE 11.3 and decided to stay here longer, but I’m facing some issues with mounting the cd and usb stick in Gnome: once the hotplug device is discovered Gnome displays multiple lot (5+) notification windows (i.e asking about the opening application) and also causing Dbus errors like:
“DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending”.

Ubuntu just mounts once, no issues like mentioned above.
This is standard 11.3 installation, where should I look for the cause?

This seems to be a Gnome-specific issue. A similar thread here, and a recent Ubuntu thread.

Wait for a few days and see if others report similar problems, or someone provides a solution. Otherwise, consider submitting a bug report on this.
