Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

To reproduce this bug I take a USB pen drive (two I used were both 4GB but different manufacturers).
1. Using GParted,
  a. make new partion table
  b. make one partition FAT32, label no more than 13 characters long.
2. observe drive is not visible on desktop anymore.
3. Close GParted
4. Observe drive is not visible on desktop
5. Open GParted and see that drive is not seen.
6. Only remedy found so far is to unplug and replug in USB pen drive.

1) The release of Ubuntu you are using Ubuntu release: $ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Release: 10.04

2) The version of a) udev: $ apt-cache policy udev

  Candidate: 151-12
  Version table:
 *** 151-12 0
