automounter ignores UUID entries in fstab

Bug Description

I have an external USB drive. By default, when I plug it in it comes up as /media/usbdisk. However, it is possible to override this with a line like "/dev/sda1 /media/MyName ..." in /etc/fstab. Then, when the drive is plugged in it is mounted as /media/MyName.

However, when the entry in fstab uses a UUID instead of a '/dev/sdxx' filename, the drive is automounted as 'usbdisk'. If one then unmounts usbdisk and does a "mount /dev/sda1" then it is mounted correctly as 'MyName'. So the manual 'mount' tool appears to identify drives by UUID correctly, while the automounter doesn't.

Tentatively pmount, but I don't know exactly where in the stack this should live. Martin?

Which release are you on? Feisty should get this right, and the pmount bug is already known as bug 69087.

Yup, looks like this is the same as bug 69087, go ahead and mark as dupe.
