This is great. I actually knew about it, but had forgotten. I once had
to fiddle around with where the loggings would go to, because I was
suffering from little disk space in a server with too much logging.

This is a good test. I will try it when I get back home.

Also, would gnome-mount be a requirement for the kind of behaviour I am
expecting? I didn't have the chance to check if I do have it installed,
but it seems that it's not a dependency of gnome-volume-manager, so I
might not have it.
