Bug Description

This is a regression caused by the change for bug 1836593.

The change made in commit 51ef36d2281a38a65111995718e8ab85178438e5 [1] had broken/inverted logic that did the unmount only if the tracking variable 'MP' was empty.

In the hunk below, that should clearly check for '[ -n "$MP" ]'
+ if [ -z "$MP" ]; then
+ echo "unmount $MP";
+ umount "$MP";
+ udevadm settle
+ fi

If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-disco. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

This was not accepted into the -proposed pocket for Ubuntu until just now so I don't know why comment #3 modified the tags regarding verification but I'll undo that.

I have verified code from my own git ubuntu tree, and missed it wasn't in -proposed yet. I'll provide correct verification from pkgs in -proposed next. Thanks for fixing it Brian.
