It's pretty annoying that thunar mounts a drive to /run/media/user_name/XX instead of /media/XX, can I change that behavior ? I'm running latest arch linux

Here's an extensive thread on this udisk/udisk2 issue, including hints on why /media is supposed to go away. –  sr_ Aug 3 '12 at 8:05

If you're desperate, you can search and replace the path in the thunar sources, then recompile thunar.

Alternatively, you could make /media into a soft link to /run/media/user_name, or the other way around, since you're the only one using the laptop.
