Bug Description

Take a fresh Hardy system
2 users, user A created during installation and user B added by A with defaults options.

1/ Start system
2/ login with B
3/ switch to A with the user applet
4/ under A, open tray and put a dvd

-> BUG
error message + totem launched but black screen + you can hear the dvd sound ...

5/ switch to B with applet

-> totem is already reading DVD

6/ close totem
7/ logout
8/ go to A session (already opened)
9/ try to eject DVD

-> BUG -> you can not eject because DVD was mounted by B (But B is logout :/ )

The mecanism to mount a DVD (In fact all external devices are affected) should use the active user/session and not the first loged user in the system.

Of course it affects other media too, not just DVD playback. More than once I get the 'Only otheruser Can eject /dev/device' when that's not the case.

I also have been experiencing this problem since Ubuntu 7.10. It's annoying but I usually just use the terminal to log in to the other account and kill totem. Looking forward to seeing it fixed.
