Package: gvfs-backends
Version: 1.22.2-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

If I connect a USB drive, an icon appears for it on my Xfce desktop.
If I mount the drive by right-clicking on the icon, the drive mounts
okay, but some noise appears in /var/log/syslog, e.g.,

  Jan  3 16:53:19 allegro org.gtk.Private.UDisks2VolumeMonitor[1169]: index_parse.c:191: indx_parse(): error opening /media/kupfer/external/BDMV/index.bdmv
  Jan  3 16:53:19 allegro org.gtk.Private.UDisks2VolumeMonitor[1169]: index_parse.c:191: indx_parse(): error opening /media/kupfer/external/BDMV/BACKUP/index.bdmv

A web search indicates that these messages have something to do with
Blu-Ray, but I get these messages for non-DVD devices, e.g., a
FAT-formatted thumb drive or a hard disk that is formatted with ext3.

I would prefer not to have this clutter in my syslog, or at least get
rid of the word "error" in the message.  As things stand, these
messages make it harder for me to detect legitimate error messages.

If I mount the device from the shell ("sudo mount ...") I do not get
these error messages.
