When reformatting a USB drive with gparted, my volume manager attempts to mount the device. This results in some error messages telling me the device could not be mounted. The only way I know to turn these messages off, is to temporarily disable the auto-mount options in "Removable drives and media" settings for XFce4. Changing these settings constantly gets to be troublesome. Is there a better solution?

They have fixed a similar problem for Gnome in Ubuntu.

The fix was in gparted, so maybe it can work for Xfce too.
