  Two processes attempt to mount blank optical discs

Status in OEM Priority Project:
Status in glib2.0 package in Ubuntu:
Status in unity-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This behavior can be reproduced using either a live USB or an
  installed version of the effected flavors. Simply insert a blank
  optical disc in the drive.

  The behavior differs slightly in Ubuntu GNOME as the notification to
  either Open with CD/DVD Creator or Eject is displayed twice - that is
  after simply clicking on the X to close that notification it closes
  but a new duplicate notification appaers immediately. The GNOME
  Classic session is not effected at all.

  In all other effected flavors and/or desktop environments a
  notification appears stating "Unable to mount Blank disc. Location is
  already mounted". Effected flavors and DE's include Ubuntu w/Unity,
  gnome-session-flashback, and Ubuntu MATE.

  Versions effected include Trusty, Utopic, and Vivid. I assume that two
  separate processes are actually attempting to mount the blank optical
  media, rather than just the file manager attemting to do so, because
  both Nautilus and Caja are effected (based on some of the comments
  below possibly also Nemo).

  While purely cosmetic in nature I'd certainly be willing to try and
  troubleshoot this if someone more tech savvy would provide some
  debugging instructions.

  This error message comes up, while still able to burn, read/write etc. It occurs in quantal when inserting a CD/DVD into the drive, but it did not happen in precice.
