Polkit and USB Mount Authentication

Suddenly popping in a USB or CD/DVD was asking for authentication!  Short story, polkit issue.  Edit org.freedesktop.udisks2.policy in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions and change:

org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount-other-seat
org.freedesktop.udisks2.eject-media-other-seat

to read:

“<allow_active> yes</allow_active>”
