Re: list-harddrives-stub now lists CD-ROM drives.



list-hard-drives just lists what comes back from parted.getAllDevices().
For some reason, sr0 is ending up in the list we get from libparted.  It's
probably a bug, but not in list-hard-drives.  Either parted or the kernel.
And if it's in the kernel, it's entirely possible that it's as-designed.
