External USB/Fireware Storage devices no longer visible/accessible after switching users

Bug #368100 reported by Kristian Jones on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I have just upgrade to jaunty (directly from intrepid).

If I access an external drive with a given user then switch to another user, I can no longer see the device listed in under "Places" in nautilus.

With intrepid I could switch users and if a drive was mounted as another user I had the option to dismount (By clicking the "EJect" icon) and re-mount as the new user. The only option I have at the moment is to manually disconnect and re-connect the storage device.

Many thanks
