[Sugar-devel] Disk volume lost from frame

When a system running Sugar has a USB drive mounted, it is visible in
the frame and the Journal volume toolbar.

If the system suspends, and then resumes some time later, sometimes
the USB drive is not remounted, and has to be removed and reinserted.

This seems to be caused in gvfs where the media insertion event
timestamp is more than five seconds before the current time, leading
gvfs code to mark the volume as not to be automounted.


In other desktops, when automounting is skipped, the user clicks on
the icon for the drive to mount it.

Should Sugar have a feature for manual mounting?
