This will be fixed in
udisks (1.0.0~git20100223.a38230-2) experimental; urgency=low

  * New upstream git snapshot:
    - Add support for "disable polling" udev property. (LP: #379780)
    - Rework partition table probing; In particular, always respect
      UDISKS_PARTITION_* and UDISKS_PARTITION_TABLE_* udev properties.
    - Export alignment offset for a partition
    - testsuite: Fix LVM tests

udisks will replace devicekit-disks soonish (it's more or less a simple rename).

universe are pointed away from Earth?
