The reason is that the code wants to be able to check changes cheaply,
so it checks to see if the old and new lists are identical before it
reads the volume names, which is a fairly expensive operation.

The following patch I think should fix the race condition and simplifies
the code. I haven't tested it in exactly this form, but a version
with all the changes except for removing the calls to 
update_modifed_volume_name() fixes the problems that we were seeing.

(And I'm pretty positive update_modifed_volume_name() is a no-op here
since the "to" volume is just a copy of the "from" volume structure.")

An optimization that could be made here would be to replace:

	/* Process list results to check for a properties that require opening files on disk. */
	load_additional_mount_list_info (current_mounts);


 load_additional_mount_list_info (new_mounts);

 foreach mount in current_mounts:
   if (mount is in new_mounts):
      copy information from new mounts
      copy information from monitor->details->new_mounts

If you had a big bunch of CD-ROM drives on a system, it might be a 
considerable win to avoid opening them all and reading the labels
from all of them when a new disk was inserted in one. It won't
make any difference for the common case of one CD-ROM.

+	* libnautilus-private/nautilus-volume-monitor.c (verify_current_mount_state): 
+	Fix bug where the mount list was stored without full mount
+	names. Don't call mount_volume_make_name() on volumes that
+	might not by on the system any more. Remove code that 
+	(unsuccesfully) tried to fix the old volume names up, since
+	we now have the correct old volume names.
+	Effect of these changes is to fix a race condition where

+	icon on the deskop.
