OK, this is getting spooky....

After "forcing" gnome-mount (via "gnome-mount -d /dev/sdb1 --fstype
ext4"), and unmounting (via gnome-mount -u), I rebooted and forgot to
power off/unplug the USB drive.

After gdm login, the system had no problem mounting the ext4
filesystem (/media/Backup1 was "just there").

Now, each time I "plug in" the USB drive, it just automagically mounts
the ext4 FS without any complaints or problems.

I can only guess that something was "caching" the filesystem type
(udev?) somewhere....

On the up side, this is now "just working" for me.  On the down side,
not sure I can help debug this any longer....

Make sense to you?
