For me mounting an iscsi device triggered this bug (on 64 bit platform).

Every time I insert a cd rom compiz crashes while cd rom is being mounted.

This bug happens every 7 out of 10 while mounting.

While this is has gotten worse of late, particularly when removing usb drives, seems to have first occurred here with unity_6.12.0daily13.03.25.(1),
Not sure if the 25 .1 or just .25 release.
unity_6.12.0daily13.03.20 has no such issues here.
