I'm not sure what you would patch, some instructions on how to disable
the feature in the GNOME menus would be appropriate. It's easy to use a

It turns out that there is a daemon similar to magicdev, which is
used with KDE: autorun
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/autorun/). From the description:
I just found out that both magicdev and autorun originated at Red

functionality, even if it meant a security weakness, and they
implemented it for both GNOME and KDE, as magicdev and autorun
respectively. It seems like these are separate packages, so I think
the best thing to do is to recommend uninstalling them wholesale.
I'll try and get a patch to README.volmgt together this weekend.
