Are you still seeing this bug?

If you are: do you have gvfs installed? If not, does installing gvfs
and its hard dependencies resolve it? (Installing gvfs-backends, which
is considerably larger, shouldn't be necessary.)

Following up on Adam's original bug report, I found that XFCE in the
current development version of Debian (buster) displays extra devices
on the desktop whenever gvfs is *not* installed.

If you still see this bug, please use the command
"reportbug --template thunar" to collect information about the system
and send it to the bug address.

It would also be helpful if you could send the result of running this
script on the affected system:

You will need to install python3-gi if you don't already have it, and
on Debian stretch or jessie you might need to comment out some calls to
functions that don't exist in older GLib versions. If the output contains
things that you consider to be sensitive information, such as disk serial
numbers, you can edit the output to censor them, as long as it's obvious
where you have done so.
