Automounting problem with ROX

ROX-Filer appears not to wrap directory names in quotes or otherwise allow for spaces in names when it sends arguments to the unmount and eject commands (and also likely the mount command, though I haven’t tested this).

I’ve sent a note to the user’s group to see if there is a fix.

If there is not, it probably means I will need to write a new script that does not pumount or eject media directly, but rather opens a dialog where the user can choose what to pumount/eject. This is not an ideal situation, but it’s probably the best that can be done with ROX.
