Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Sometimes when I insert an audio CD I get a dialog that says "You have just inserted an Audio CD. Choose what application to launch." It doesn't show up for every CD... probably something like once for every 5 CD insertions.

Every single time I select "Do Nothing" and ensure that the "Always perform this action" checkbox is checked. I assume the point of the checkbox is to let me make the decision once and for all, but this dialog continues to reappear periodically. Now when the dialog appears "Do Nothing" is selected and "Always perform this action" is already checked!

Work around:

I asked about this on askubuntu.com. It was suggested that I should got to the Media tab in Nautilus's preferences and set the "Do Nothing" option there. I went to do that and found that "Do Nothing" was already set. I just dismissed the preferences dialog, but since then the problem has not reoccurred. It's pretty weird that opening and closing a settings dialog without adjusting any of the settings would have any sort of lasting effect...
