Multiple desktop icons for encrypted devices?

Magnus Therning
On Sid I've just noticed a rather irritating new behaviour.  I have a
LUKS encrypted partition on my USB memory stick.  In an earlier attempt
to get it mounted under a "nice" name I gave the filesystem (ext3) a
name ("Stick").  That wasn't honoured at all so I added a HAL policy
that sets the volume.label:

    <match key="volume.uuid" string="d23647f8-22be-4a8c-86f8-8f59975e9e61">
      <merge key="volume.label" type="string">StickCrypt</merge>

That worked just fine.  I ended up with a well-known mount point
(/media/StickCrypt) and a desktop icon named by the label.  Great!

Lately the behaviour has changed.  I now end up with two desktop icons,
named Stick and one named StickCrypt.  They both lead to the same mount
point, /media/StickCrypt.

Has anyone else noticed similar behaviour, and how do I get back the old

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

If voting could really change things it would be illegal.
