the moutpoint-argument of wbumount-gtk is optional. it could be used to
run wbumount-gtk from other applications (like filemanagers which fail
to umount a device).
wbumount only lists devices mounted by the current user ("user" option
in /etc/fstab). hotplug devices are always mounted by root - i guess -
there is now way to umount them manually anyway. on my mdk10 hotplug
uses supermount - i don't know if this is always the case. how do other
linuxes (redhat?) deal with hotplug devices? do they just create a
"user" mountpoint in fstab - or do they mount right away?
do you think it would make sense to extend the capabilies of wbumount to
watch supermounted devices?
