How this bug can come out of its dead-end? Any suggestions?!

That's a nautilus behavior, controlled by the gconf keys:


Either one is enough to cause automounting.  Both are enabled by
default, and only the second can be disabled through the UI, so it's
unlikely that a beginning user would have automounting disabled unless
the sysadmin did it for him/her.

Assuming nautilus automounting is enabled, would that be enough for
PackageKit to work properly or is there some other issue?  It would
still be nice not to make that assumption.
