Only One Thin Client Mounts Local Devices (Was: My Negative Gutsy Experience)
Now we have fresh installation of 7.10.

We have the marked lines in the file.
As before only one (if any) client can mount local devices.
This is one that has a 'floppy0' icon at its desktop.
(Maybe it's the 1st client booted, I will examine tomorrow.)
I tried to debug remaining ones as described in
All the steps except the last one have succeeded.
The last one put the following error:

X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or
server shutdown).
Error: /tmp/.teacher-ltspfs/tmp is not mounted

The second problem with local devices are cyrillic letters
in filenames. Nevertheless, when a USB stick mounts,
cyrillic letters in filenames appear as question marks.
I've found a solution (dirty hack) and posted it along
with the problem as bug 164508.
