I have been able to circumvent the problem

Now only root can mount and umount floppies. Since GNOME does not
run with root privileges, it can't mess me up.
was to keep the above lines in "/etc/fstab" and mount floppies with
"udisks --mount /dev/fdX".
That works, Tom. Thanks! And of course the corresponding
udisks --unmount /dev/fdX
command unmounts the floppy. It appears that udisks has taken over
the mounting and unmounting of removable-media devices just like
network manager has taken over network devices. I don't think
You're welcome. Definitely not Kansas; probably more like Mars,
especially since udisks was called devkit-disks not long ago so we're
being kept on our toes... (I presume that the "u" comes from udev but
it's a total WAG.)
