Bug#692805: gvfs: fails to mount certain removable devices

Package: gvfs
Version: 1.12.3-1+b1
Severity: important

After upgrading from squeeze to wheezy, some (but not all!) USB sticks 
aren't mounted automatically any more when they are plugged in. I'm 
seeing the device in /var/log/syslog, dbus-monitor lists VolumeAdded 
events, and the (unmounted) device shows up in Files, but it's not 
mounted automatically.

(I would love to debug this but don't know where to start. Any hint will 
be appreciated.)
