Bug#447491: Access to external devices from the desktop is broken when using UUID

Package: kdebase
Severity: normal

I have an external USB drive. In order for it to always have the same 
mountpoint, I used its UUID in /etc/fstab :

UUID=fc264689-4306-4adf-bc9e-862fd642c3c9        /media/usb1     auto    
rw,user,noauto  0       0

I then created a new device on my KDE desktop to access it. Here is the 
content :

[Desktop Entry]

If I try to mount it, the icon will not change. If I try to access the 
disk by clicking on the device, it complains saying the device is either 
unmounted or busy and then fails. However, if I go to /media/usb1, I can 
it has 
worked, as the disk is now mounted. So, 3 things do not work as expected 

1/ The icon does not change when I mount the disk
2/ There should be no error message as the disk is mounted
3/ I cannot access the disk from the desktop
