I know this functionality but it's not what I want (AFAIK).
I have a entry for /dev/sda1 in my fstab. If I check "Show unmounted hard 
disks" the icon is always shown, even if /dev/sda1 is not even existing.
I want to have a icon appearing when I plug in sda1 (and it comes into 
existince in /dev). When I click on this icon it is being mounted.
