It seems to be that this bug started to hit me too (14.04.4). USB drives are no more automatically mounted. When I insert a drive, I'm given a popup "Unable to mount ... Not authorized to perform operation". According to Disks, x-gvfs-show -option seems to be given to mount command and it doesn't accept it (tried from command line).

What I don't understand is, why this started to happen just now? I'm sure that automatic mount worked recently (unfortunately I can't remember exactly when it worked last).

Is there any workaround? Where does the x-gvfs-show -option come from in automatic mount process?
