If you use devfs device naming, the devfs like name should be in your
fstab. This should indeed be mentioned clearly in the README.debian to
be :).

There is no communication between nautilus and gvm/hal/udev etc. Nautilus
won't see the difference between gvm mounting your cdrom or manually
mounting the cd.

I don't know how nautilus gets the cdrom label, maybe some change in the
cdrom device's permissions is causing this ?
