Wrong iPod mount path

Bug Description

ipod devices mounted by HAL are mounted under a unique name (e.g. USER'S IPOD),
while rhytmbox tries to read from /mnt/ipod.
The solution is quite simple: ln -s /media/USER\'S\ IPOD /mnt/ipod.
Rhythmbox than recognises the iPod, and i must say it's freakin' cool!

Newer Rhythmbox (CVS) uses HAL and GnomeVfs to detect that automatically, works
here without the link.
