Should I file a bug against gnome-vfs-daemon then?

No, I don't think hal modifies /etc/fstab. Line

    /dev/hdb1   /mnt/data   xfs   defaults   0   2

is my own manually written one. It's been there for some time,
but just now I got  'Svazek 55,9 GB' (read: volume, I got Czech Gnome here)
on my Desktop. What else should I try?

The problem is one of my 'system' partitions is now appearing as volume
icon on Gnome desktop and I'd like to know why and how to get rid of this
behavior. Thanks for any tips or hints.
