Still I wonder how could the fallback have an effect on the way
removable media are handled. In my new MGA2 installation from the free
DVD where I selected GNOME standard installation I did not experience
the fallback (although the proprietary driver of my nvidia wasn't
installed). When I insert a stick or sd card or a cd I immediately get
the popup with the icon and options to mount it (no root needed).
