Description Yuri 2012-04-01 02:14:25 UTC
If device is mounted through hald and unmounted outside of hald (by umount command), hald still thinks device is mounted.

I suggest hald should watch the mounted state of the device (through kqueue or similar interface) and adjust the device state if it was unmounted outside.

Currently, calibre (ebook reader manager) mounts devices through hald, and it doesn't unmount them when it exits. When they are unmounted by user, next run of Calibre fails to mount the device again since hald still thinks device is mounted.
