#1077: Mount Tray requires root permissions on a regular user login

     Type:  System Defect         |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major                 |  Milestone:  9.2
Component:  System Configuration  |    Version:  10.0-RELEASE
 Keywords:                        |
 Mount Tray requires root permissions to run on a regular user login. Below
 are the steps to reproduce:

 1. Create a regular user in User Manager leaving the "Can administrate
 system" checkbox as unchecked.
 2. Logout
 3. Login with the new user account and input its password

 Observed behavior:
 Notice that Mount Tray will not appear on the notification Area once you
 are logged in on the desktop environment. Try launching Mount Tray from
 the Control Panel but Mount Tray will not lauch.

 Run pc-mounttray from a terminal and notice it will return a message
 saying that it requires root permissions.

 Expected behavior:
 Much better if Mount Tray does not require root permissions on regular
 users so that regular users can access their files on external usb drives

 My System is PC-BSD 10.0-Release-p4
