Hello, I've run into a strange issue after updating my system.
gvfs doesn't seem to remove disconnected devices/volumes anymore. For example, let's say my device is assigned
Code:
mtp://[usb:002,004]/

After unplugging/plugging it back, it will then be assigned
Code:
mtp://[usb:002,005]

This is a problem for me because every time I plug my phone or change its transfer state (MTP/no MTP) a new device shows up in my file manager and I need to restart my X session for it to go away. It can stack up very fast...

Anyways, I'm not sure if this is an issue with the way I handle my file manager & permissions or if this a recent bug. All help is appreciated, thanks! :)

Thanks for the heads up, I'll try updating gvfs whenever I can.
