Debugging information


I changed the Hintsystem property for an external USB drive, even though the setting seems to be taken into account by udisks it is not properly enforced as the volume is still automounted for the user as usual.

Here is the udev rule I added :
$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/90-test.rules 
ENV{UUID}="5fa999cf-1c08-47e4-b25e-cf8a2a32bbf3", ENV{UDISKS_SYSTEM}="1"

According to udiskctl dump, the setting is read :
    HintSystem:                 true

but udisks doesn't behave as intended.

I noticed a similar issue when working on a LVM volume, cf to the Debian bug I opened : https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=788526

I'm using udisks2 version 2.1.3-5. Please find attached additionnal debugging information.
