Devices get mounted automatically, and we don't want to ask for
passwords on this occasion; either an user is allowed to mount a drive
(then it just happens), or he isn't (then you need to do it manually
as root).

The little icon's purpose should be restricted to be an easier
method of unmounting a removable device.
