Multiple cdrom icons showing up in Nautilus

Hal is presenting gnome-vfs2 with the
volume=/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/temp/109/ while it polls the device
to see what volumes it has.  This is getting added as a volume for the
drive. When the device is done being polled hal gives gnome-vfs2 the
real volume uri, which then gets added on and shows up in nautilus as
another volume.  Looking at the code all this makes complete sense to

My question is that I think what I need is for _hal_volume_policy_check
to stop that first temp uri from being processed.  I assume I can do
that in a  .fdi policy file, however I am not sure of the syntax to
say..."hey skip over this volume uri".

If anyone could help I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance
