It works as expected. However, I get the label "51.7 GB Volume" instead 
of something like "hda1". When I mount the volume, the name shows as 
"51.7 GB Volume: _", and it is mounted under /media/_.

This feels a little uncomfortable. Where are you getting the underscore 
from? How will a second partition be named? Is it possible for the user 
to name a partition, if you (as a developer) don't want to confront 
users with "hda1" etc?

Anyway, thanks for this little feature! I like that I now can 
mount/unmount fixed drive partitions with the GUI.
