Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-disk-utility

Package : gnome-disk-utility
Version : 2.30.1-2 (from maverick repo)

- plug an usb2 device (in my case this is my Android phone)
- open palimpset and open the device. Look at the line "Connection" (actually it also displays the speed)

Expected result : "USB at 480.0 Mb/s" instead of "USB at 480.0 MB/s"

Notice : this error is also true with French language (Mo/s instead of Mb/s).

It is a shame that Ubuntu developers ask users to check again and again if the bug still exists in development version without doing anything then, and despite users gave the simple way to know if the bug still exists.

However, I just check on oneric, and of course the bug still is present, so I switched back the status to confirm.

I just know the next step will be "this is an upstream bug so please open a bug in gnome bug tracker" so I will wait few more useless time.
