DVD Drive Mounts, but not on startup or after new log on

Bug Description

I have a slight problem with my DVD drive since upgrading to Breezy from Hoary.

If I startup my computer or log in as another user and turn totem on to play a
DVD that was already in the drive when the computer was shut down or when the
previous user logged out, I get an error indicating that the mountpoint for my
DVD drive /dev/hdc could not be found by Totem in /etc/fstab.

This can be resolved by opening and closing the DVD drive. The DVD is then
recognized instantly, and icon appears on the desktop, and I can watch the film
in Totem. However, there must be some sort of glitch, since this rather silly
step was not necessary in Hoary.

    This does not occur with my other optical drive (CD-Rom): it mounts and
re-mounts flawlessly at all times.
    This did not occur in Hoary prior to Breezy upgrade.

I have seen some suggestions about similar issues in various release candidates
of Breezy, but I only ugraded after the official/final release.

Thanks for your bug. That's known upstream has
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=318401 and fixed with the current
dapper version. The DVD has to be mounted to be played, gnome-volume-manager
does that automatically when it's insered but not when you boot with the DVD
already in place
