Subject: [gentoo-user] Why is "mtp-probe" running when I plug in a USB device?

1 I've noticed that whenever I plug in any sort of USB device,
2 "mtp-probe" runs and logs the fact that the newly attached thing "was
3 not an MTP device".
5 This appears to be triggered by a rule in
7 /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules
9 which is owned by media-libs/libmtp
11 Why does that library think it should be probing every USB device I
12 plug in? Is that automatic probing required for libmtp and mtpfs to
13 work?
15 I do _not_ want anything to happen "automagically" when I plug in a
16 USB mtp device. I know if a device is an MTP device, and if I want it
17 mounted, I'll mount it manually.
