mount cmd spawns unwanted desktop icons
I am running a box that has two windows partitions (one is ntfs, the other is vfat) in it as well as my linux partitions, I can mount these with no problem as root, and after editing my /etc/fstab I can mount them from any accout in the users group. However, if I mount them from a user account, my desktop spawns two to three hard disk Icons, these dont go away when I unmount the drive either. So the only way I can get rid of them is by erasing them from a command line, and only if I su first. I have two methids for mounting the drives, either via the command line, or using the gnome disk-mounter applets I put in my panel, either of these methods spawns the aforementioned desktop objects. This does not happen from the root account, but does happen if I mount the cdroms from a user desktop via an su:root terminal.
