Sorry Im not sure about the right forum to post this - Im very unfamiliar with configurations of this kind.

Since following updates:

Code:
09 05 2014 21:59:00   >>> emerge (1 of 3) sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-26-r2 to /
09 05 2014 21:59:46   >>> emerge (2 of 3) sys-fs/udev-212-r1 to /

the attached loop device' partitions dont show on my desktop (XFCE), but they get created:

Code:
brw-rw---- 1 root disk   7,   0 May 22 13:14 /dev/loop0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 259,   0 May 22 13:14 /dev/loop0p1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk   7,   1 May 22 13:17 /dev/loop1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 259,   1 May 22 13:17 /dev/loop1p1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 259,   2 May 22 13:17 /dev/loop1p2


Other hotplugged devices - USB or local not-mounted storage - are shown properly.

Questions:
=======

1. Can somebody confirm having such experience ?
2. What causes this unlucky change ?
3. Who is responsible for putting the Icons on the Desktop ? (Thunar VolMan, udisks, udev; some .config or .rules file ...)
4. Nice-to-have a fix or workaoround...
5 .. or to post it as a bug somewhere.

Description:
========

Im using following command to "attach" a WinXP or Raspbian image file to the loop device:

losetup -fP /run/media/root/VIRTUALS/winxp.hda
losetup -fP /run/media/root/MOUNTS/2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian.img

Earlier the created partitions - /dev/loop0p1, /dev/loop1p1 etc - used to be instantly shown on my XFCE Desktop as a hotplugged drives, and with simple click they get mounted and opened whith thunar.

Exactly after above updates no icons for the partitions are shown anymore. It is worth noting that this was also the point where the hotpluged USB devices - as well not mounted local partitions - were changing the mountpoint from

Code:
/media/$LABEL
to
/run/media/$USER/$LABEL


OK , this is maybe a cosmetical issue, since Im able to mount them manually, but in a produvtive environment there is a serious impact on the working flow.

System:
======

Standard Gentoo profile
Code:
default/linux/x86/13.0
rolling release with all packages the latest stable versions as at the time of posting.

Thanks in advance for any response !

Are you using gvfs-mount to manually mount stuff?

Im not familiar with gvfs-* tools

Im just saying:
Code:
mount /dev/loop0p2 /mnt/img
or so.
What would be the difference ?

Im worried about XFCE Desktop not showing the partitions after losetup arranges them over the /dev/loop* files like this:

Code:
root@thinkkiste <2> 16:46:56 ~
$ losetup -fP /run/media/root/MOUNTS/2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian.img
root@thinkkiste <2> 16:46:56 ~
$ l /dev/loop*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk   7,   0 May 27 16:46 /dev/loop0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 259,   0 May 27 16:46 /dev/loop0p1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 259,   1 May 27 16:46 /dev/loop0p2


Any ideas ? - Thank you !
