	I normally read this list with Pan via Gmane, with my 
subscription set to nomail. For some reason, however, in this thread I 
was getting posts from Rahul in my email; since the list was copied, I 
went ahead and replied in email. 	

	Now I see what looks like Rahul replying to Rahul, with my posts 
not on Gmane.  I don't know how or why that happened.

	Rather than dig them all up (unless requested), I'll just 
describe result so far. 

	I have gnome-format installed. It launches, and seems to try; but 
I then get an error message saying "Error opening /dev/sdc: Permission 
denied" -- even if the disk is one whose Properties tell me its 
permissions "could not be determined."

	I did 

[root Hbsk2 dev]# chown -R btth:btth /dev/sdc
[root Hbsk2 dev]#

and that seems to've gotten rid of the permission problem -- or 
maybe just hidden it ...

	Eventually, after various warnings, it does show both the stick 
and the file system to put on it, as well as a live "Format" button. 

	Then nothing more happens. No matter how long I leave it (up to 
half a day), gnome-format shows no sign of doing anything; and the stuff 
on the stick is still there.
