Bug Description

Gnome alerts that my removable usb media is almost full. This is not needed and definately needs to be restricted to non-removable volumes.

   * New upstream version:
     - Install autostart .desktop file into /usr/share/gnome/autostart instead
       of /usr/share/autostart.
     - Reduce 'low disk space' warning to threshold to 5%. (Malone #33770)
     - Remove percent_freed gconf value and usage, so that low disk space
       notifications do not stop at 97.5%. (Malone #33058)
     - Small bug fixes.
   * debian/rules: Adapt moving of the autostart file to /etc/xdg/autostart.
   * Adapted patches to new upstream version:
     - 02_pmount_crypt.patch
   * Add debian/patches/07_low_disk_space_no_media.patch:
     - Do not notify about low disk space on mounts below /media (usually
       removable drives) since they are just annoying and not critical for
       system stability. (Malone #32370)
   * Add debian/patches/08_low_disk_space_no_readonly.patch:
     - Use statvfs() instead of statfs() since the latter is deprecated and
       statvfs() additionally tells us mount flags.
     - Do not notify about low disk space for read-only mounts. (Malone #34618)
   * Add debian/patches/09_low_disk_space_always_show_mountpoint.patch:
     - Always show the mount point in low disk space notifications to avoid
       confusion with ambiguous labels (but only if the label is different from
       the mount point). (Malone #31441)
