here on quantal i386, the system itself re-add an entry about fd0 into
fstab, but this hardware does not exist.

But switching to OFF into g-d-u cant be validated: it start a loop and
never accept the OFF choice.

Title:
  automatic mount options switch logic is backwards

Status in “gnome-disk-utility” package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  Context was in testing and reporting bug #1011257 (reports a
  functional problem with actually using this dialogue). I noticed that
  when you go into "Edit Mount Options..." on a volume, the dialogue you
  get has an "Automatic Mount Options" switch at the top, which defaults
  to "ON".

  In this state, the rest of the dialogue is greyed out.

  You have to switch that switch *OFF* to be able to ungrey the rest of
  the dialogue, set some options, and save them to /etc/fstab.

  This seems backwards to me. :-) Surely you should be switching the
  options *ON* to be able to edit and save them.

  As such this is a user interface / usability issue rather than
  functionality.

  Maybe the problem is a misreading of the ON/OFF switch. Maybe it's
  currently written so that ON means "treat entirely automatically, in
  the default way" and OFF means "allow manual configuration". But the
  wording is a bit ambiguous and I (with fairly good English language
  skills) read it the other way: that the switch labelled "Automatic
  Mount Options" means to enable the user to set options for mounting
  that volume automatically, in which case the logic of the switch is
  definitely reversed.
