It is not mounted ;)  It only gets mounted of you actually open it in 

As for mount options, there's no way yet to specify any.  But since, as

If you put an fstab entry for it, I think HAL will stop detecting it, 
not sure.  Oh, did I mention that it actually doesn't get mounted until 
you open it in Dolphin?  ;)
