Confirmed bug and submitted bugzilla.xfce #10539 (included that user 
"poma" from this list found the bug, though I only submitted what I 
could confirm through my testing).

After all this, I discovered that the drives/media still do not 
auto-mount, even though the property /misc-volume-management is there 
and set to true. A bit of a dig in their bugzilla shows #9193 which 
looks kinda similar with a bunch of comments, suggestions, tests, etc. 
but no explicit mention of a patch being released.

I guess I will just see what happens now and, if necessary, get used to 
manually mounting the volume. Given how long I've spent on looking at 
this issue, I could have manually mounted a whole lot of drives/media 

Thank you for your help
