i'm just about to add this to the wiki page, but i want to document
how to deactivate this setting as well.  from the man page for
gnome-mount, i see the option "--erase-settings", so the deactivation
command would then be:

  $ gnome-mount --erase-settings --device /dev/sr0

in my case, anyway.  does that look right?


p.s.  i've already rewritten and expanded on a couple things over at
the recipe for jigdo, based on earlier readers' incessant, whiny
nagging ...^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H amazingly
useful and appreciated feedback.  :-)
