Revoking at_console privileges is neither practical nor desired. It would mean that you couldn't access the sound card or your modem any more while the screen is locked; also, this would mean that the desktop would need to get the privilege to give back at_console privileges to itself when unlocking, which really shouldn't happen.

I think for this scenario it would make more sense to disable automounting while the screen is locked. This needs to happen in nautilus, or perhaps the gvfs volume daemon. I'll discuss that with upstream.

Moving milestone, as it isn't a release blocker, and the kind of bug fix that can be done after FF.
